Branchcache - Hosted Server Not caching for all users RRS feed

  • Question

  • I’m currently testing a Branch cache deployment (Hosted Server model) and am having issues with file caching. While logged into a Windows 10 system as the administrator account I used to configure branchcache, I am able connect to a content server and can see data transferring in perfmon between the host server. If I then log on with another test account on the same system and attempt to retrieve other files from the content server I see no data transfer in perfmon. Group policy appears to be successfully applied while logged on as the test account, and has been verified in RSOP. Performing a Get-BCStatus (Info below) as either user on the same system returns a result that would indicate that the system is pointing to the local cache host.

    Information from Get-BCStatus on client

    PS C:\Users\username> netsh branchcache show status all
