Do More Than Manage
Gord Schmidt's Ideas for Doing More with Microsoft Project Server
Summary Task

The Size of the Request Exceeds the Limit Allowed by the Server

Calling PDS methods can be a wonderful thing. When the quantity of data in your XML request grows large though, Project Server returns a message:

The size of the request exceeds the limit allowed by the server.

In order to get around this problem the maximum post size for SOAP requests must be increased in order for the request to be handled. That maximum post size is stored in the Registry.

To increase the maximum post size:

  1. On the Project Server machine start RegEdit.
  2. Navigate to the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SOFTWARE / Microsoft / MSSOAP / 30 / SOAPISAP / MaxPostSize
  3. Change the value from 0x00019000 to, say, A00000.
