Error Deploying Report to SSRS – maxRequestLength 20690

When deploying Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Intelligence to SQL Server Reporting Services SSRS you may get this error:

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.

This is an easy FIX:

Open the folder where SQL Server Reporting Services is installed & edit the web.config file. Typically:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS13.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer

CHANGE THIS: <httpRuntime executionTimeout=”9000″ requestValidationMode=”2.0″ />

TO THIS: <httpRuntime executionTimeout=”9000″ maxRequestLength=”20690″ requestValidationMode=”2.0″ />

Then click the ‘Redeploy’ button and the process should complete as expected.
