Upgrading Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway

Learn the steps for performing an upgrade to Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway.

If you have an array of Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway servers, perform these upgrade steps on each server.

To upgrade the Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway:

  1. If your Vocera 5.3.0 or Vocera 5.3.1 installation has a customized Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway properties file (\vocera\telephony\vgw\vgwproperties.txt), back up the file to a flash drive or to a temporary location on a network drive.
    After you install Vocera 5.3.2, you will need to merge the changes into the corresponding file on your upgraded Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway.
  2. (Optional for 5.1 or later) Uninstall the existing Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway. See Uninstalling Vocera Voice Server Software.
    Note: You do not need to uninstall Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway software, if you are migrating from a Vocera 5.1 release to a later 5x release. However, if you are migrating from a Vocera release earlier than 5.1, this step is necessary. For example Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway 5.0 to 5.3.2 or 4.3 to 5.3.2.
  3. Install the new Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway. See Running the Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway Installation Program.
  4. If you have a customized Vocera SIP Telephony Gateway properties file (\vocera\telephony\vgw\vgwproperties.txt) from a previous deployment, merge the changes into your current vgwproperties.txt file.
