Learn how to deploy VMP in your environment,
including how to import and add users and contacts, how to encrypt
your data for greater security, and how to deploy a failover environment to
ensure maximum reliability.
Starting and Stopping the VMP Server
When you install the VMP Server, it is automatically started for you. To restart the server, you must restart the Vocera Data Exchange service.
VMP Server Log Files
The VMP Server log files provide information on all actions performed by the VMP Server. This can be useful if an unexpected error occurs.
Monitoring Email With VMP Messages Vocera Messaging Platform provides features to integrate user email into the Messaging feature. The server monitors the email box and sends a message to the user when new mail is received.
VMP Security and Encryption Structure
All transmissions between the VMP Server and client applications on iOS and Android devices employ secure communication methods. The method employed depends on the device's operating system and on the environment in which it is being used.
The VMP Server provides configuration options to ensure that all smartphone users are required to protect the device with a password. This option ensures that your confidential internal information is protected if the device is lost or stolen.
Remote Wipe Vocera Messaging Platform provides a data wipe option to let you remove sensitive Vocera data from the mobile device without affecting any other mobile data. Additionally, if a more in-depth device wipe is required, leveraging Microsoft Exchange or a Mobile Device Management tool may be effective.
Updating the APNS Certificate
When the VMP Server wants to send a message or other notification to a device running Vocera Collaboration Suite on the iOS operating system and the device is not on the corporate network, it sends the notification to the Apple Push Notification Service (APNS), which then sends the notification to the device.
Changing the SQL Accounts for the VMP Server
If the SQL Server database has been updated, and some or all of the SQL accounts that the VMP Server uses have been removed, you can update the VMP Server to use the changed accounts.
Uploading a Device Certificate
If you are using a Mobile Device Management solution to install a device certificate on your devices, you can upload this certificate to the VMP Server. This ensures that only trusted devices can use the Vocera Collaboration Suite application to connect to the VMP Server.
