Is there a file size limit in RTC source control?

Is there a file size limit in RTC source control?
I'm asking because I've tried with the web client and the Eclipse client (v3.0.1 both and server same) to checkin a file that is 167MB, and it consistently fails at 160MB. The error from Eclipse is a silly:
Error during upload
  Failed to upload File /SAFE Code/
  CRJAZ1247I The request to the server failed.  The server returned the http error 400 with error text "Bad Request".  Examine any further details here or look in the server log files for more information on how to resolve the issue.

We are using Windows 2003 servers with SQL Server 2005.

Any ideas?

this has been answered in the context of e.g. this post.
Basically you can increase the file size limit by changing the value in the admin page (https://<yourserver>:9443/ccm/admin) looking in the Advanced Properties page for max file size content.

If this answers your question, please mark it as accepted.

The post you referred to seem to be talking about attachments to work items. Also, "max file size content" does not exist on the advanced properties page at our ccm/admin page.(There is a maximum attachment size in the work items section... which is not what I'm talking about.)

I just checked on a 4.0.5 /ccm and the property is now called:
Versioned Content Maximum Size, with =0 being unlimited. This is actually the default setting so it might be the observed limit is actually imposed somewhere else in the process. This blog also clearly states there is no file size limit imposed on RTC SCM.
Do you have access to the server log to see more details as to what is causing the upload to stop?

The expected behavior is not to have a file size limit for SCM.

Hi Donna,
Don't forget you have an application server (Tomcat or Websphere) in front of RTC. The application serer may have limits in its configuration.

FORUM ADMINISTRATOR / FORUM MODERATOR / JAZZ DEVELOPER is also a good reference for information.

Simon, how could an application server do that?
