Root element is missing

Post by MHegelund »

Hi


After upgrading from Veeam B&R 4 to Veeam B&R 5 I keep getting the following error.

"Initializing target session
Read summary xml error
Root element is missing"

First thing I did was to create a complete new virtual backup server with a clean install of Veeam B&R. That helped for a couple of days, but then I started to get these errors again.

Any idea what might be causing this.

Veeam B&R is running on Server 2008 R2.

Hello,

Could you tell please where do you get this error? Also, are you using v5.0.0 or 5.0.1?

It is version 5.01.198 64 bit.

The error is shown when I look at sessions and then look at details on the failed job.

This is the complete text in the VM summary field:

OP did not post either support case number or resolution, so I cannot look up unfortunately.

I am trying to stop the job that had previously generated those errors since, for whatever reason, it has been backing up 1 VM for the past 7 hours whereas it usually takes a matter of minutes. The job and process have been in the "stopping" state for about an hour now. How do I remedy this?

Kill the job process (agent) with the Task Manager.

I was told that I need to run a full backup for resolving the issue. I re-ran the job (mistakenly the incremental) last night and it failed again with the same issue.


What's really killing me is I can't say "run a full on this individual machine within this backup job" rather than having to create a whole different backup job. I have to re-run the entire job (128 vm's and 5.4Tb raw in this case) and wait 8 hours.

Based on the responses above, it looks like you should start your backup job from scratch, but I would still recommend to contact our support team with all technical issues you may have. Thanks!

Holy thread resurrection. Just started getting this on a couple VM's in a job that's been working fine for quite a while now. Do we know what the proper fix is?

Thanks foggy. Looks like removing the VM/re-adding it did the trick for us here.
