Is this reproducible?

It is reporducible. But, I forgot to mention one important thing. I have changed "Server name" field  on installation jsf page when upgrading to 3.0.1. Without changing "Server Name" this issue does not happen.

Given Libor's comment: "I have changed "Server name" field  on installation jsf page when upgrading to 3.0.1. Without changing "Server Name" this issue does not happen." I don't see this as a blocker for 3.0.1. 

We should probably just reset the "Server Name" field and whatever other fields we don't support change on upgrades, when the upgrade option is selected. I'll leave this bug open for that, but drop the priority and take the target release off

In the meantime I'll raise a doc BZ for 3.0.1 to tell people not to change the "Server Name" field when upgrading.

Well, I think you are allowed to enter a server name, but this would in effect try to add another server, HA style.  But if you do that you should also be changing other things, like the unique endpoint.

There is a message on the installer screen:

  "If installing a new server enter the server endpoint settings below:"

If you are upgrading an existing server the expectation is, I think, that you will leave the server name alone.

As per triage, targeting for JON3.1.1

    [BZ 801551] - Make sure the server name is not editable when upgrading
    existing server in the installer.

Bulk closing of items that are on_qa and in old RHQ releases, which are out for a long time and where the issue has not been re-opened since.
