Updating the VMP Server

These steps describe how to install an update of the VMP Server.

Note: For best results, save a backup of the contents of the folder in which the VMP Server is installed (by default, this is \Program Files\Wallace), and save a copy of the WICMASTER SQL database.
  1. Stop the Vocera Data Exchange service. See Starting and Stopping the VMP Server for details on how to do this.
  2. Execute the updated VMP setup file on the VMP installation server.
  3. In the Welcome screen, click Next.
  4. Accept the License Agreement, and click Next.
  5. In the Software Type dialog, select VMP Server and Administrator, and click Next.
  6. Accept the existing Destination Folder and click Install.
  7. In the Create VMP Database Wizard dialog, do the following:
    1. Enter the SQL Server VMP instance name using the format of ServerName\InstanceName.
      Tip: Vocera recommends that you type the name of the Server and instance name instead of using the dropdown list.
    2. Select the Sql Server Authentication radio button.
    3. Enter the server authentication Login and Password.
    4. Click Next.
    Note: For details about the SQL Server requirements, see the Server Sizing Matrix.
  8. Click OK to confirm that the existing database will be upgraded, and click Next.
  9. Skip the step that asks you whether you want to install the OTA.xml file.
  10. The installer will create the VMP databases on the SQL server. When the script is complete, click OK.
  11. If the VMP Enterprise Manager opens after the database script is complete, close the application to complete the installation process. Click Finish to close the installer.
  12. Restart the server.
  13. The VMP Server is now updated. Confirm a good installation by opening a supported Web browser and pointing to the server URL. If VMP is installed correctly, the VMP Web Console opens.
