Greetings!

I have recently done several conversions and when I went to do this one, it gave me the following error:

Error returned by expat parser: reference to invlaid character numberwhile parsing serialized value of type stingat line 2, column 391while parsing property "name" of static type stingwhile parsin serialized DataObject of type vim.vm.Config.Specat

Does anyone have any hints, or can point me in the right way?

Either way, thank you in advance!

Kind Regards,

Mike

Hi,

Looks like that datastore or the folder has a non-ASCI symbol. Please consider renaming the datastore.
