BranchCache Configuration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    A question about BranchCache Distributed mode. When files are amended from a client machine does this replicate back to the hosted machine (server). Example User1 using Win7 in BranchCache Distributed mode and opens a file from remote server - makes changes to the file an saves, does this replicate back to the server? I read on another Forum that it does? Confused Im under the impression that it purely caches.

    How about in Hosted Mode?

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Q: What happens if content changes on the server? Do users receive old content?
    A: No. BranchCache ensures that clients are served with the most up-to-date content on the Content Server.

  • Yes, edits to a file are saved directly to the server both in distributed mode and hosted mode.
