I have a single server setup on one site. It is a Windows 2008 R2 64 bit server. It is the domain controller, DNS, DHCP and file and print server.

I have another 2008 member server set up on a remote site and configured a site to ste vpn.

I want to configure Branchcache between the two servers. My question is how do you enable hash publication on a dc and is it ok to do so. I see there is an article on this for non domain controllers
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee649130(WS.10).aspx

Enabling hash publication is an essential step in configuring Branchcache. Has anyone set it up on a file server that is also a Domain controller

[quote]If you perform this procedure on a domain member file server and you also configure BranchCache using domain Group Policy, domain Group Policy settings override local Group Policy settings.[end quote]

As you are in a domain, you don't need to enable hash publications.  The article you are referring to do is for non domain servers only.
