FileWave Version 14.8.0

FileWave Management Suite

The FileWave endpoint management suite allows you to manage your devices wherever they are, wherever you are, whatever they are, and all in one platform!

There are 3 essential elements to be aware of before upgrading:

  1. Longer than normal upgrade times (read more)
  2. New ports for notifications have been added and you may need to add new firewall rules (read more)
  3. This version of FileWave completes the migration to TeamViewer and "Observe Client" is now fully removed



FileWave 14.8.0 upgrade will perform important database maintenance operations. Depending on the size of your FileWave setup and your server performance, running these operations may take significantly longer than a normal upgrade.  On the largest of databases, the migration may take up to several hours, so you should plan your upgrade for a suitable maintenance window.

Once started, It is essential to let the upgrade process complete, therefore make sure you properly schedule the migration as your server will be offline during the upgrade.
