View Next Audit Version


The 'maxPostSize' value is the maximum size in bytes of the POST that will be handled by the container FORM URL parameter parsing. Limit its size to reduce exposure to a denial-of-service attack. If 'maxPostSize' is not set, the default value of 2097152 (2 MB) is used. ESX Agent Manager is configured in its shipping state to not set a value for 'maxPostSize'.


Navigate to and open:


Remove any configuration for 'maxPostSize' from the <Connector> node.
