probably need to fix start.jsp. start looking in there for the possible problem.

fyi: the steps to reproduce in the description is not entirely accurate.

you don't even have to be doing an upgrade. Just, before you start a newly unzipped server distro, edit rhq-server.properties so that you change the db settings to, say, an oracle DB (you don't even need a real oracle db installed/running - you are just messing with the settings). When you start the server, the installer's db type drop down always defaults to postgres. flipping to oracle, changes all your custom settings to the defaults.
