These error messages occurs when SQL Replication is enabled for Microsoft Dynamics CRM databases and you attempt to insert into a text, ntext, or image column that is published in a replication article.


To resolve these error messages take full backup of all ORG_MSCRM and MSCRM_CONFIG databases and run the below query:

sp_configure 'max text repl size', 2147483647

Note: The setting takes effect immediately without a SQL server restart.

More Information:

max text repl size’ option specify the maximum size (in bytes) of text, ntext, varchar(max), nvarchar(max),varbinary(max), xml, and image data that can be added to a replicated column or captured column in a single INSERT, UPDATE, WRITETEXT, or UPDATETEXT statement. The default is 65536. A value of -1 indicates no limit, other than the limit imposed by the data type. This option applies to transactional replication and Change Data Capture. When a server is configured for both transactional replication and Change Data Capture, the specified value applies to both features. This option is ignored by snapshot replication and merge replication.
