Running the Vocera Voice Installation Program

Follow these steps to install Vocera Voice Server in your environment.

Vocera Voice Server is distributed electronically using an ISO image file. Before installing and setting up Vocera Voice Server on your system, follow the steps in Electronic Software Distribution.
Note: If Vocera Secure Texting (VST) is installed in your environment, you must uninstall the VST Sync Connector before you upgrade to the latest version of Vocera Voice Server. See "How to Uninstall the Vocera Secure Texting Sync Connector" in the VST Administrator Guide. Re-install the Sync Connector after you complete the Vocera Voice Server upgrade. Make sure that you download and install the latest version of the VST Sync Connector.
