Windows 7 Standard Distribution point - problem access to the file share RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a problem with my Windows 7 Branch Cache :

    before installing the branch cache on a machine Windows 7 SP1 , access to the sharing (\\Computer_Windows7) of this machine is possible from a windows server 2003, but after i have installed the branch cach , access to shared document became impossible from windows server 2003  to this branch cach Windows 7.

    The access stay possible from windows 8 , 7 , windows server 2008 or Windows server 2012 to this machine.

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    I'm a little unclear about this issue. Generally we will enable Branch Cache on a server and use Group Policy to enable it in branch office.

    Whether the Windows 2003 is in the same subnet/site as the Windows 7 system?

    If so, branch cache should not be involved when accessing a local folder on Windows 7 system. What's the error message when trying to access the Windows 7 system from the Windows 2003 system?
