I am trying to upgrade a 10.3.1 Enterprise Geodatabase to 10.8. I come across a potential problem.

I checked the SDE_server_config table to view AUTH_KEY and it says:


What happened to the expiry date? I am sure this will cause an issue during upgrade.

How do I fix it, or do I just continue and try to upgrade to 10.8 and hope for the best?

There is no expiration date for arcsde licenses for customers. Your arcsde license is perpetual and it shall work just fine if you upgrade the arcsde geodatabase repository from 10.3.x to 10.8.x. I hope this clarifies.
