Visual SourceSafe 2005 upload file size problem

    Question

  • I'm having problems with checking in new files to sourceSafe over a certain size.

    Steps to reproduce the error:

    1.. Created a new project and added to SS over http to my server.

    2. Created a word document with a series of images until it reach 1 MB in file size.

    3. Added that file to the project and checked into SS, that uploads fine.

    4. Changed the word document and increased the file size to 2 MB, added that file to SS, as a new file and it fails to upload.

    I can see the file in the Upload folder on the server with a GUID, I renamed the file so that it will open in word and it's OK.........It just won't load into SS............without getting the "There was a failure uploading the URL...."

    I've changed the timeouts and some other things on what I've read in these groups, but no Joy.........

       Any tips or idea's........

  • "There was a failure uploading the URL...." means that the upload of the file (using the PUT WebDav verb) failed for some reason.

    The message appears during the physical transfer to the server, before VSS gets to the point when PostCheckin web function is called (which should allow the server component to checkin/add the file from IIS upload folder into the VSS database).

    I'd probably look in the IIS log files if there is any error code for the upload (httperr + win32 error codes), binary compare the file from the GUID folder with the original file (although the size may be correct the content may not match completely)

  • I can't reproduce this.  Does it happen with all files >2MB?  Are you using SSL encryption?  LAN or internet?  Do you have the LAN Booster service enabled?
