WAVE Server Database Files

The WAVE VMS Server uses a combination of database technologies to accomplish its amazing feats. Below we outline the details of each database required in order to keep your WAVE VMS System up and running.

*NEVER modify database files in a System without express direction from the Hanwha Support Team.
