SharePoint 2010 + DocumentSets + OfficialFile.asmx max file size
Tripped over this issue today. This post explains exactly what’s going on - namely that when using the OfficialFile web service (for e.g., records management), the 50mb upload file size is in place, irrespective of any setting the Web Application General Settings.
- Make sure that you have set the max file size on the web application
Central Admin –> Manage Web Applications –> Select the Web Application –> General Settings –> Maximum Upload Size
- Open the following file and edit on each SharePoint server:
C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedWeb Server Extensions14ISAPIweb.config
Add the following section, then save and close
Didn’t even need to recycle the web services website/app pool. Perfect!
