Connecting to and Disconnecting from an Active Directory Configuration

Once you set up an Active Directory configuration, you can establish a persistent connection to it from the Vocera Voice Server.

The connection will be maintained as long as a Vocera Voice Server is active. If you restart the Vocera Voice Server machine, the connection will resume when the server comes online. By default, the Vocera Voice Server checks the status of the connection every minute. If a connection fails, the servers attempts to connect to another Active Directory server in the list of Primary Servers first, and then Secondary Servers.

To connect to an Active Directory configuration:

  1. In the Active Directory Configuration list, select a configuration that is not connected. The value in its status field must be “Not Connected.”

  2. Click Connect.

  3. When prompted, click OK.

    The Vocera Voice Server attempts to establish a connection to the Active Directory. If the connection is successful, the Status field changes to “Connected” and shows the IP address of the connected Active Directory server.

To disconnect from an Active Directory configuration:

  1. In the Active Directory Configuration list, select an Active Directory configuration that is connected. The value in its status field must be “Connected.”

  2. Click Disconnect.

  3. When prompted, click OK.
