Hi everybody,

We have a strange beavhious with the branchcache service on Windows 2008 R2.

The service is installed in distributed mode on a 2008 R2 Standard and runs correctly.
Everythings seems correctly configured in the GPO (Microsoft documentation)

Turn on BranchCache :  Enabled
Hash Publication for BranchCache : Allow Hash Publication only for shared folder on which BranchCache is enabled
Set BranchCache Distributed Cache Mode : Enabled
Configure BranchCache for network files : 0
Advanced/Caching/Only the files and programs that users specify are available offline
Enable BranchCache In the share

We have Windows 7 Utlimate clients and we can see that the GPO is correctly applied on the computers and on the server too.

When we try to open or download a file, nothing change in the cache size, it stays at 0 octets.
No firewall on both computers and servers !

I don't know what's the problem !
Any idea ?

Thanks

set the 0 to 1, 0 means off, and 1 means on. Plus you need to have the clients going THROUGH the server, otherwise the server wont be able to see whats happening.

Good luck.
