Enterprise Vault reporting error when scheduling a report "Maximumrequest length exceeded"

We have to schedule a quota uage report in EnterpriseVault but while scheduling we are getting "Maximum request length exceeded".

This is not hapening on every report, while troubleshooting we found that it is getting generated only when the report is bigger in size. The error is definately related tpo SQL reporting services.

The report I was extracting was bigger then 6 MB in size. We need to editr web.config file of reporting services so that it can accomodate that.

Open web.config file of report manager(not report server) & find the httpRuntime  executionTimeout , append maxrequestlength parameter as below.

<httpRuntime executionTimeout="9000" maxRequestLength="102400" />

Reset IIS & see the magic. This worked for me so it should work for you as well.

This will allow the reports that are bigger then 4MB(4096)-- Deafult value.
