The list is too large to save as a template. The size of a template cannot exceed 52428800 bytes
I was trying to save a list with huge content, as a List Template. As in SP 2007, there are limitation regarding the size of the template. The limit can be changed using STSADM line command.
To increase the maximum size, simply run the following stsadm command (from the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN directory) replacing the propertyvalue to the new maximum size (in bytes):
stsadm -o setproperty -propertyname max-template-document-size -propertyvalue 150000000
- The propertyvalue parameter is in bytes, so the example above will increase the maximum size to approx 150MB.
- The command increases the maximum size of list and site templates.
