I have since removed hibernate.properties...still no joy.
Please post the appropriate part of the logs along with the exception stacktrace.
In gathering the requested logs, I noticed for the first time this message:
Persistence unit name: vram-dos-server-ejbs-CURRENT
This is the actual name of my EJB jar file, not my persistence unit name configured in persistence.xml. I changed my code to reference this name, and everything works! I do have a new persistence.xml file as well (though I don't think this changed anything). Below is the file. I you have any thoughts as to why the persistence unit name is my jar file name and not the name given in the XML file, that would be helpful. Thanks!

Upgraded to RC5 and problem resolved.
