3. checked VM ID in SQL data base and it is correct.

An error occurred while parsing EntityName
This issue usually appears while processing VM with virtual disks located on datastore with ampersand in its name. The only option you have is to rename the corresponding datastore.
VEEAM v6 patch 3
It used to be a known-issue in VB&R 6 version, thus, it’s always recommended to be on the most up-to-date version since numerous improvements have been implemented so far, as well as, a variety of issues, like the aforesaid one, have been addressed.

Thanks.

Thank you so much
It was very helpful and my problem has been solved.

Just one note: I didn't have "&" on datastore name, but i have it in name of VM folder on datastore. I changed it and problem gone

[MERGED] Error: An error occurred while parsing EntityName.

Post by bburgstaller » Oct 30, 2016 2:05 pm

Hello everyone,

We are currently using B&R 9.5 Beta on a test system. Build number: 9.5.0.554.RC1
Just stumbled over a bug that has been in the software before: veeam-backup-replication-f2/error-an-er ... 16761.html
Issue: When trying to backup a VM that has a folder including an ampersand "&" in its configuration (eg. because an ISO image has been mounted as a CD drive), the backup job will stop with the error "An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line 1..." In our case it was the following folder which was mounted as a cd drive to install Veeam B&R: D:\temp\Beta\VeeamBackup&Replication_9.5.0.554.RC1.iso
Our environment:
Hyper-V host Windows Server 2016
VM to backup also Windows Server 2016
Seems to be an issue with the XML-processing library in use...
Hope this is not a duplicate to a previous message but as Veeam support didn't know of this issue until last week, I guess it's new.

Best regards,
Benedikt

Hi,

The error should have been fixed however it never hurts to double-check so I've passed you message to QA.

Thanks for heads up!

UPDATE:

Please contact the engineer who gave you the build and work with him so he can send us the logs. Also please tell me who is your engineer via private message.

Thanks

Had this problem with an ampersand (&) in the VM name. It worked fine in version 8, but appeared in version 9. I encountered while trying to perform a quick backup.

Hi Lucas, I was able to reproduce this (though with a different error message), so thank you for the heads up. Passing info to QA.
