how to enable and start distributed cache service on newly added SP2013 server in the farm RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Team, I just added new server in the SP2013 farm and trying to turn on distributed cache service from CA (want to add to cache cluster) and It says "Error starting".

    i ran below PS  

    Get-SPServiceInstance | ? {($_.service.tostring()) -eq "SPDistributedCacheService Name=AppFabricCachingService"} | select Server, Status

    and It says the DC is "disabled" on the server.

    So question is how can i start it?

    Please help. 

    Thanks.

  • Use Add-SPDistributedCacheServiceInstance on the server you want to start it on.
