  • DVS-406: Sometimes fails to start correctly after a reboot

  • DVS-568: Service crashes after multiple stop / starts
Known Issues: 
  • DVS-521 / DVS-595: When enrolled in DDM, domain information in the UI may not be accurate (the DDM IP address may be displayed as N/A, and the DDM hostname may not appear).
  • DVS-594: With DVS enrolled in DDM, changing the DDM hostname may cause DVS to present in DDM as 'offline'. Workaround: Clear domain credentials in DVS, 'forget' the device in DDM and restart DVS.
