In preparation for version 10 — Please read "FileWave 10 - OS Version Support" to verify environment compatibility.
Your existing FileWave Server must be version 7.x or higher for upgrade to FileWave 10.
To use the new "observe client" functionality, please consider the tcp port usage article to unblock the new ports necessary for this functionality.


Please read: 
It contains important information that will help ensure your upgrade runs smoothly.  It is strongly advised that you review this for each release, since new notes or instructions may have been added.

Upgrading to FileWave 10 will require upgrades to both your FileWave Imaging Appliance (IVS) and FileWave Engage Server for compatibility


VPP Device Assignment requires that your iOS devices are upgraded to iOS 9 -- creating "VPP Device Assignment" associations to iOS 8 devices may cause loss of user data!

The new feature of VPP app assignment to devices will cause the creation of a VPP user with no organization linked to all MDM Apple devices (iOS and macOS). If you have queries that fetch the VPP users for VPP organization, you'll have to add a criteria "VPP Organization.token name is not null."

It is not recommended to convert all associations from user to device association at once, as Apple limits the number of requests per min. Read more at
