kopano-backup: ParseError: not well-formed (invalid token): line 1, column 0

  • Hi,

    we are using Kopano Backup on a UCS 4.3.3 -errata 419. When starting the backup (kopano-backup -w 3 -l INFO), we get a number of errors like this:

    2019-02-09 22:31:10,518 - backup0 - INFO - backing up: et
    2019-02-09 22:34:06,820 - backup2 - ERROR - Traceback (most recent call last):

        try: yield
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/kopano_backup/__init__.py", line 893, in dump_rules
        etxml = ElementTree.fromstring(ruledata)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/xml/etree/ElementTree.py", line 1311, in XML

        raise err
    ParseError: not well-formed (invalid token): line 1, column 0

    I found the following posting, stating that the error should be fixed in version 8.2, but it is still there.


    Should we care about this error? Would it be possible to perform a restore with this backup?

    Thanks for any hints or suggestion.
