Known Issues

Microsoft SQL Server support

AirWatch 9.0 (including any future AirWatch 9.0 Feature Pack) will be the final AirWatch version that will support Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 for the AirWatch Database.  Future major versions of the AirWatch Console will require that the AirWatch Database is installed on a server that is running Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or Microsoft SQL Server 2014.

As of AirWatch 9.0, AirWatch does not offer full support for Microsoft SQL Server 2016.  We are looking to add support for SQL Server 2016 as soon as possible.
