FileMaker Server Licence Key reverts to expired "Trial" Key

I have had issues with one of my production installations twice this year. The first time, Filemaker Server would not start any of the databases after overnight backup scripts were run. I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling FM Server on the machine and got it back up and running.


This morning, the same thing happened, but this time I noted (before reinstalling) that the license key had revered to a Trial key and was "expired" (and therefore no longer serving like it should). This is likely what occurred last time and the installation really only succeeded in updating the key (which was in the Assisted Install.txt)


I was quickly back up and running after copying the correct license key, but I am confused by the occurrence.


Has anyone else seen this?
