Not sure what you mean by 'AD and/or member file server', they are the
same thing really, unless 'AD' is a massive typo for 'DC'. In which
case, the answers are, no, you shouldn't upgrade a DC directly from
4.6.x to 4.10.0, though you can do it in stages, 4.6 to 4.8.x, then to
4.10.0. There have been reports that you can upgrade a DC directly to
4.9.x (and I suppose 4.10.0), then run ldbedit on the DC, but I haven't
tested this.

There should be no problems with upgrading a Unix domain member
