Dynamics GP 2010 R2 Business Intelligence Installation Error maxRequestLength


During Dynamics GP 2010 R2, I have selected to deploy Dynamics GP Business Intelligence Reports over SQL Server Reporting Services, but before starting the installation, the system generated an error that maximum number of retries has been exceeded and was requested to set a maxRequestLength flag in the web.config.

Web.config could be located under the installation path of SQL Server Reporting Services, in my case it was under the following path:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10.SQL2008\Reporting Services\ReportServer

in the web.config, search for <httpRuntime executionTimeout=”9000″ /> and include the variable there to make it looks like the below:

<httpRuntime executionTimeout=”9000″ maxRequestLength=”20690″/>

Somehow, 20690 in specific is required, it will not accept number higher!

Update: Below is the exact error message:

The deployment has exceeded the maximum request length allowed by the target server. Set maxRequestLength = “20690” in the web.config file and try deploying again.

    Thanks for this! Unfortunately I keep getting the same error even when the web.config file has been correctly edited. Not sure what the hang up is.
