eSync error: hexadecimal value 0x00

  • Updated

The following error occurred during eSync: " '.', hexadecimal value 0x00, is an invalid character. Line 1, position 1."

The ServerInfo85.xml  file at either end of the Sync-relationship is blank.

The ServerInfo85.xml file must contain proper XML before it can be populated by the Ektron Windows Service.

1. Locate ServerInfo85.xml at each end of the Sync-relationship. The file is located in the \sync folder at the root of the drive where the CMS site is located

2. Edit ServerInfo85.xml and add or remove data as necessary so that it contains only the following:

<!--?xml version="1.0"  encoding="utf-8" ?-->           

3. Save ServerInfo85.xml and re-evaluate the functionality.
