Installation

Important: 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 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 Server upgrade. Make sure that you download and install the latest version of the VST Sync Connector.

To upgrade from Vocera Server 4.3.x, 4.4.x, 5.0.1, or 5.1.0:

  1. Follow the steps in the section of the Vocera Installation Guide called "Upgrading Vocera Voice to Version 5.2"
    Note: Your previous system configuration remains in the database that is restored at the end of the upgrade. Because some 4.x features have been deprecated, update the values in your database as follows:
    1. Open the Voice Server Administration Console and navigate to the System > Preferences page.
    2. Choose Save Changes.

      The server updates your database and removes any settings for deprecated features.

  2. If you are upgrading from a 4.x deployment and have a custom names dictionary, convert it to the 5.x format manually. If you’re upgrading from 5.x and have a custom names dictionary, there is no conversion needed.

To perform a new install:

  1. Follow the steps in the section of the Vocera Installation Guide called "Running the Vocera Voice Installation Program."
