or

The maximum number of rows in an excel worksheet with the current format is: 65536

Detail

The limitation on NCM and NPM reports has been decreased to 65535 rows with the NCM 7.4 and NPM 12.

This will be a Feature Request, since developers will need to implement a check on the version of excel used when exporting this to excel.

Please try the following steps to increase the Request Length when selecting nodes in a NCM job:

1) Go to C:\inepub\SolarWinds\Orion\NCM folder.
2) Create a backup of Web.config .
3) Open the Web.config file, and add the following element in “<configuration>” section:

<location path="Resources/Jobs/ChooseNodes.aspx">
    <system.web>
      <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="8192"/>
    </system.web>
</location>
