Autoconfiguration of Vocera Collaboration Suite Devices

When the Vocera Collaboration Suite is started on a device, a startup screen appears on which the user can specify the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) or IP address of the VMP Server. You can autoconfigure the Vocera Collaboration Suite client to display the FQDN or IP address of the server on this startup screen.

To set up autoconfiguration, have your IT department create a DNS entry named autodiscovervs for the VMP Server. The recommended approach is to configure the autodiscovervs entry as a CNAME record and reference the FQDN of the VMP Server (or the VMP Server load balancer). The VCS client will use the FQDN present in the CNAME record if there is an A record for the FQDN. If no DNS CNAME record is found but an A record exists for autodiscovervs, the VCS client will use the IP address specified to connect to the VMP Server.

The VCS client will search for autodiscovervs.localdevice if it cannot find autodiscovervs.
