I'm getting the warning below on my SQL Reporting Server. The IP address is our F5 load balancer that sits in front of the server. Is there a way to change the value of what Report Server thinks is a denial of service attack or disable it all together?
The report server has detected a possible denial of service attack. The report server is dropping requests for service from x.x.x.x
If the number of connections from the same user exceeds the maximum allowed number of concurrent connections from one
user, the SSRS will not handle new requests and it will wait until existing requests have terminated. This condition can be met easily if for example the
RainbowPRD was using the same account to connect to the SSRS
service or if one user would perform operations exceeding the maximum number permitted.
To address this, we have the possibility to increase this value, mentioned above,
for the maximum number of concurrent connections from one user. This parameter is
called MaxActiveReqForOneUser and is configurable in the RSReportServer.config.
So, open the RSReportServer.config file in D:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT SQL SERVER\MSSQL.2\REPORTINGSERVICES\Report Server\ and locate the element <Add Key="MaxActiveReqForOneUser" Value="20"/> Change the value of this parameter from 20 (the default value ) to a number that
corresponds to your requirements.
