Large report fails to publish to infoview

I have a report that's massive, has about 100 subreports, about as many independent graphs and even more formulae, so even after I've tried to steramline it it's about 260MB.

When I try to publish this report to automate it, I consistently get the error: "An error has occurred: Maximum request length exceeded." This even though it appears to upload through 100% in the lower left corner.

I'm running crystal reports server xi, on a window 2003 r2 server standard (with enough disk space). I've been unable to get help from SAP chat support or their crystal reports phone number, though they said they did not believe there was any intended limit that would cause this error. I tried searching these forums as well but found nothing.

It runs fine (though understandably slow) in crystal reports xi developer on my workstation.

If it's relevant, we have standardized and identical odbc connectors to all databases involved, and that's all it uses for its data, no direct sql queries etc..

I've thought about making a skeleton report with the same connections, publishing that, then manually finding the report directory on the server and overwriting the file, but I'd really like to find the root cause and be able to publish properly, and update properly in the future. Any help or information would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    Try these steps to solve the "Maximum request length exceeded": error if you are using IIS.

    =======

    Change the following:

    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\CONFIG\machine.config

    <httpRuntime

    executionTimeout="90"

    maxRequestLength="4096" // change to the size of average document in the environment - for instance 51200- 50 MB

    useFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl="false"

    minFreeThreads="8"

    minLocalRequestFreeThreads="4"

    appRequestQueueLimit="100"

    enableVersionHeader="true"

    />

    C:\Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 11.5\Web Content\web.config

    <!-- request length is 20MB -->

    <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="20000"/> // change to the size of average document in the environment - for instance 51200- 50 MB

    =======

    Regards,

    Ken
