We are working on a WiX project for deploying our large application (the server side of the application, that is.) The customer has the choice to have the application server, the SQL Server and the Reporting Server all on the same box, on 2 boxes or on 3 separate boxes (or VM's.)
Here is one of our current issues that we are working through. For the SSRS side, we have a main model that we need to deploy that is about 7mb. With the default install of SSRS, the max is 4mb. I know that we need to manually manipulate the two web.config files to add the 'maxRequestLength' string, but we don't really want to do this on their servers and that is assuming that this meets the clients security policies as well as that they aren't already setting that to some other value for another application. (We can't assume that they are using that SSRS instance only for our application.)
Our customers are local City and County governments.
Is there any way to accomplish deploying the model file manually, bypassing the max upload size limitations?
