After upgrading NPM and most of the modules to newer versions, some of the modules were triggering a "Your Maintenance Has Expired..." in the portal. Each individual module has a tool in the Start->Progams menu that sounds like it would do the trick, such as "Application Performance Monitor Licensing", but alas these tools only display the current license and don't tell you how to change it.
Some posts on Thwack indicated that I needed to use the License Manager tool to "Upgrade" the licenses. I think I was successful, but the tool seems to remember older versions and their associated older maintenance expiration dates. I tried to "deactivate" and "upgrade" these older entries to make them go away, but neither option is successful.
Requests for the product team who owns the License Manager:
Jeff, ever year you are given a new license in the customer portal. If you are getting the "Your Maintenance Has Expired ..." message then more than likely you simply haven't updated the license from your portal.
