Symptoms

When upgrading a domain from a 10.3 to a 10.3.3 version of WebLogic Server, custom security providers are not being upgraded.
If weblogic.Upgrade is run with the -log=upgrade.log option the following messages are being logged:

010-11-10 09:52:16,917 INFO [execute] com.bea.plateng.wizard.plugin.LogMessageObserver - Migrating old security provider jars from D:\bea2\wlserver_10.3\server\lib\mbeantypes
2010-11-10 09:52:16,917 INFO [execute] com.bea.plateng.wizard.plugin.LogMessageObserver - Not upgrading commo.dtd because either this is a Out of the Box Oracle Security Provider jar or this Security Provider jar is already upgraded or this is not a valid archive (may be not a .jar)
2010-11-10 09:52:16,917 INFO [execute] com.bea.plateng.wizard.plugin.LogMessageObserver - Not upgrading cssWlSecurityProviders.jar because either this is a Out of the Box Oracle Security Provider jar or this Security Provider jar is already upgraded or this is not a valid archive (may be not a .jar)
[...]
2010-11-10 09:52:16,932 INFO [execute] com.bea.plateng.wizard.plugin.LogMessageObserver - No Security Provider jars have been Upgraded


This causes the servers of the upgraded domain to fail to startup with the following messages logged:
