Upgrades from a pre Alfresco 4.0 will not work correctly as the avmToAdmRemoteStore patch will not be run.
The workaround is to upgrade first to 4.0.a or apply patch "patch-ALF-11029-context.xml" by dropping patch file into <tomcat>/shared/classes/alfresco/extension BEFORE upgrade. The patch can found attached to Jira ticket ALF-11029.
The 4.0.a build files can be found on wiki page
If you have already upgraded to 4.0.b then some of the user site preferences would have been reset.
This issue has been fixed in nightly build, so a nightly build can also be used instead, please visit for latest nightly build.
