FAQ: Why doesn't the Upgrade Geodatabase tool prompt for a new license key when upgrading an ArcSDE geodatabase to 10.x?

Question

Why doesn't the Upgrade Geodatabase tool prompt for a new license key when upgrading an ArcSDE geodatabase to 10.x?

Answer

A new license file is not required when upgrading a geodatabase to version 10.x.

As long as the existing license file is still valid, it works in the upgraded geodatabase. Therefore, the Upgrade Geodatabase geoprocessing tool does not check or prompt for a license file.
