BranchCache - Cannot get Branchcache in hosted mode to work. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have a Windows SBS 2011 DC / File Server (branchcache enabled on the file share) @ the Headoffice, and Windows Server 2012 R2 RODC (Setup as the hosted cache server) in the branchoffice together with two Windows 8.1 Enterprise workstations.  I have followed the deployment guide and get-bcstatus looks good on the hosted cache server and the two workstations, which are set up in Hosted Cache Client mode as well as to autodiscover hosted cache servers (and they properly report the 2012 server in their site). However they are not taking advantage of BC at all it seems.

  • Hi,

    As you mentioned "deployment guide" I assume you have already read this article:

    BranchCache Hosted Cache Mode Step by Step Guide

    However I still suggest to recheck some settings as some of them may be skipped or missed in setup the environment. From the description there is no clue for us to continue troubleshooting. 

    If you have any feedback on our support, please send to tnfsl@microsoft.com.
