Problem "String is not a valid DateTime"

Jan 25, 2013 at 8:56 AM

Hey at all,

I have installed SP Foundation 2010 German, Backup-Share is on a remote server (via UNC)

by executing the PS Script i get following error:

25-Jän-2013 08:28:41    Error: An error occured during execution of backup script. Reason: Ausnahme beim Aufrufen von "Parse" mit 2 Argument(en):  "Die Zeichenfolge wurde nicht als gültiges DateTime erkannt."

 

what means: "Exception while calling of "Parse" with 2 Arguments: String is not a valid DateTime"

 

Can you help me please?

 

Thank you very much, great work!

Hi, we have the same issue.

29-Jan-2013 16:33:24 Error: An error occured during execution of backup script. Reason: Exception calling "Parse" with "2" argument(s): "String was not recognized as a valid DateTime."
29-Jan-2013 16:33:24 Result: SharePoint site/farm backup job exited prematurely with error(s).

Where is the spbrtoc.xml file?

Server format is English (United States), but location is Panama

Thanks!!
