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 ?
