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



  • Hi,

    we are using Kopano Backup 8.6.8.10-0+23.1 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
        parser.feed(text)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/xml/etree/ElementTree.py", line 1653, in feed
        self._raiseerror(v)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/xml/etree/ElementTree.py", line 1517, in _raiseerror
        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.

    https://forum.kopano.io/topic/37/kopano-backup-problems/2

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

    Thanks for any hints or suggestion.

    Regards,

    Stefan
