Data Collector report fails with arithmetic overflow error:

Arithmetic overflow error converting expression to data type int


Recovery Solution 6.2.2760 (SP2)


Large values in MaxNewDataBytes and AvgNewDataTypes may cause arithmetic overflow when converted into default int data type.

New report uses bigint data type to operate with these numbers.


  1. Download attached Reports_Server_config.xml.
  2. Rename file to Reports_Server.config.
  3. Overwrite original C:\Program Files\Altiris\Recovery Solution\Console\Config\Reports_Server.config with the new one.
