If you try to install Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) on a server in the environment where the NetBIOS domain name of a domain controller contains an ampersand (&) character, the server installation will fail and you are likely to see the following error.
An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line7, position 12.
This issue occurs because the “&” character is a reserved character in XML. Therefore, the character causes the parsing for current logon user to fail. Here’s how you can solve the problem. The solution used to be documented in KB article 2491951 but recently when I tried to find the article on the Internet I was unsuccessful. Luckily, I have documented the solution for you in the following steps.
