Configuring BranchCache-enabled SMB shares

After you configure BranchCache on the CIFS server and at the branch office, you can enable BranchCache on SMB shares that contain content that you want to allow clients at branch offices to cache.

BranchCache caching can be enabled on all SMB shares on the CIFS server or on a share-by-share basis.

Note: If BranchCache on a SMB share is subsequently disabled, Data ONTAP stops sending metadata to the requesting client. A client that needs data retrieves it directly from the content server (CIFS server).
