|Working with Multiple Sites / Site Terminology|
Every installation of the Vocera Voice Server has at least one Global site. Vocera automatically creates the Global site.
You cannot create or delete the Global site manually; however, you can perform any other maintenance to it. For example, you can transfer users to and from the Global site, delete groups in the Global site, and so forth.
Use the Global site in either of the following situations:
If you do not implement multiple sites, Vocera automatically associates all your entities with the Global site.
If you do implement multiple sites, but you do not assign certain users, groups, locations, or address book entries to a specific home site, Vocera automatically assigns them to the Global site.
When you upgrade from a version of Vocera that did not include site support, or when you load data with a .CSV file that does not specify site information, Vocera automatically assigns all your entities to the Global site.
If you are not going to implement multiple sites, leave all your data assigned to the Global site. If you are going to implement multiple sites, you can transfer data from the Global site to one or more individual sites. See Transferring Site Data.
If your deployment implements multiple sites, you must assign a location name to each access point and associate each of these locations with a site. Otherwise, the Vocera Voice Server always thinks that the Global site is your current site.
