The default settings of the Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) web server limit the size of a file that can be uploaded. This limit determines the size of the files that can be attached to OpsCenter forms. It is common that our customer's increase this limit to allow larger attachments. This document provides instructions for increasing the limit.
If you are running IIS 5.x or IIS 6.x you should perform the following steps:
