Error: Can't get VMId from name

I run xsibackup with the command below

./xsibackup --backup "VMs(ALL)" /vmfs/volumes/nfs3-backup-server/backup001/ --quiesce --mail-to=myemail@address.com --use-smtp=1

All VMs are backed up except one, and I get this error

2020-01-24T10:39:05 | Error code 2302 at file xsibackup.c, line 2302
Error description: Can't get VMId from name: My_VM
2020-01-24T10:50:25 | Error code 2681 at file xsibackup.c, line 2681
Error description: some error was raised while backing up: VMs(ALL), error count is: 1

How do I resolve this please?

Re: Error: Can't get VMId from name

Some VM has some characters that need to be escaped, as you are passing a meta VM definition (ALL), they can't be escaped.
Check your VM names and paths and eliminate bizarre characters such as (, ), !, ', ¨, etc...
Try to limit you names to letters, numbers hyphens and underscores. You may also use spaces and some other characters, but what's the point in doing such thing?
