Run this script on your Version 10 FileWave server. It will verify your ability to migrate your system to the new all PostgreSQL database. The results will be emailed to the address you provide at the end of the command, and will come from noreply@filewave.com. The email subject will be either [FAIL] Upgrade check report or [PASS] Upgrade check report depending on what the script has discovered.

All personally identifiable information (passwords, LDAP, inventory info, tokens) is stripped from the data before anything is uploaded for testing via an encrypted trasmission. In a [PASS] all data is immediatly erased after tests are run. In a [FAIL] the uploaded date is sent to support so a resolution can be prepared.
