This issue occurs while upgrading (IRM) Siebel IP14 to Siebel IP17+ version, but it is applicable to other upgrade paths, including the most Siebel recent versions.

When attempting to run Generate Merge Reports during IRM execution, after the repository merge,
the following errors occur:

This is the upgrep phase <siebel-root>\siebsrvr\log\upgrep_dev_<siebel-source-version>\output\upgwiz.log file, but the same can be displayed while running IRM in Unix environments in /upgrep_dev_<siebel-source-version>/output/srvrupgwiz.log file:

Steps to be executed:


1. Run the Siebel Database Configuration Wizard > Upgrade > Upgrep step and enter all parameters required. Read Siebel Database Upgrade Guide > Performing a Siebel Incremental Repository Merge.

2. When Upgrep is paused, take a back up of the Siebel database, run the update statistics and execute the Repository Merge. All instructions can be read in the link above.

3. When the Repository Merge completes (Check <Siebel-Tools-Root>\logs\ IRM_MERGE*.* log files and verify if it ran successfully), resume the Upgrade from command line and it will run the next steps.

4. The Generate merge reports will fail.
