Hi David,
we have encountered some issue during the update of the new sites information into our licensing server, and hence you are not able to see and enable those sites from your license dashboard. We are working to resolve the issue and i will update this forum post with a comment once this issue will be resolved.

Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Regards
