  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • A report is authored that runs in the classic viewer, and a
    report view is created from that report.  When the report view
    is run in IE, the HTTP request to run the report contains a
    Referer header of the form http://server:port/bi/.  When the
    same report view is run in Chrome the Referer header for that
    request is several thousand characters long.  This can cause
    different error messages depending on the web server used if the
    web server has set limits on the maximum size for an HTTP
    header.
    

Local fix

  • Increase the size limit for request headers on your web server,
    or run the report view in Internet Explorer.
