When attempting to run IRM (Incremental Repository Merge) as part of any upgrade from or later versions, the IRM step might fails and the following error shows in a pop-up when Siebel Tools initializes for IRM.

In the siebdev.log under $SIEBEL_ROOT/Tools/log directory, there will be a siebdev.log which will also show the same error that is seen in the Tools pop-up window.

No valid license keys were found in the database. Please enter a license key in the following dialog or contact your systems administrator. (SBL-DAT-00172)

The issue can be reproduced ONLY in customer environment at will with the following steps:
1. Perform a Development upgrade that involves running Incremental Repository Merge (IRM) to merge repositories from or later versions.
