After installation, you can enable or disable SSL by running the Update SSL and Connector
Settings utility. If you enable or disable SSL, you do not need to restart
the server as in previous releases.
Enabling SSL on the Vocera Voice Server
affects how Vocera Messaging Platform
and clients connect to the server.
If you enable SSL, there is additional configuration required to allow Vocera Messaging Platform
some clients, such as Cisco wireless IP phones and Vocera smartphones, to
connect to the Vocera Voice Server
;. For details, see the following manuals:
Vocera Messaging Platform Administration Guide
Vocera Connect for Cisco Deployment Guide
Vocera Smartphone Configuration Guide
Important: If you are changing the SSL configuration on a Vocera Voice Server cluster,
you should update the standby nodes before updating the active node. Update one standby
node at a time. After you restart the server and the Vocera Control Panel finishes
starting, wait until the status indicator displays the Standby status and a blue icon
before updating the next standby node. When all the standby nodes have been updated, update
the SSL configuration on the active node of the cluster. When you restart the active node,
it will automatically failover to a standby node, causing only a brief outage.
To enable or disable SSL:
All changes made by the Update SSL utility are saved to a log file named
UpdateSSL.log in the voceralogs directory.
