During a configuration roll-forward on an upgrade, the UCS load fails and reports the following error: Parsed text violates expected format.


Configuration fails to load, and the system reports the following error: Parsed text violates expected format.


This can occur under the following conditions: -- When loading a configuration that contains iFiles. -- During an upgrade process, when the source-path for an iFile contain a URL with a space or other invalid URL character in it, for example: http://myfiles.com/get this file.txt.


You can use either of the following workarounds: -- Modify the URL to the iFile to remove any spaces, and then reload the configuration. -- Use the HTTP specification for specifying spaces (and other characters) in URLs. For example, represent a space using the string %20 in the URL: http://myfiles.com/get%20this%20file.txt.
