When you use Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services or SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services to generate HTML reports in Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005, some reports may generate an error message that is similar to the following:
There is an error in XML document (line, position).' ', hexadecimal value 0x01, is an invalid character. Line, position position.
This symptom only occurs if the report uses one of the following columns as a parameter:
SC_ComputerDimension_View Computer Name Domain Name
SC_CounterDetailDimension_View Object Name Instance Name Counter Name
This problem occurs because a nonprintable character is populated into a user-defined parameter in the report.
