Alter Field tool not licensed (Bug?)

Hi All,
We have ArcGIS 10.2.1 for Desktop at Basic and Standard level installed in our machines and we are trying to use the Alter field tool (Data management tools -> Fields). This tool is new at 10.2 version and the help document says that it's available to all levels of licensing (Basic, Standard and Advanced). But in all of our machines the tool is blocked with the tool not licensed warning, using both license types (Basic and Standard). Same problem if we try the tool with ArcPy in python scripting, of course.
Strange and annoying thing... maybe a bug?.
Is there anyone with the same problem?
