Modifying the BranchCache settings

You can use the CIFS window in System Manager to modify BranchCache settings that are configured for a CIFS-enabled Storage Virtual Machine (SVM). You can change the hash store path, the hash store size, the operating mode, and the BranchCache versions that are supported.


  1. Expand the Storage Virtual Machines hierarchy in the left navigation pane.
  2. In the navigation pane, select the SVM and click Configuration > Protocols > CIFS .
  3. In the CIFS window, click BranchCache > Edit.
  4. In the Modify BranchCache Settings dialog box, modify the appropriate information:
    • Hash store path

      If you modify the hash store path, you are provided with an option to retain the cached hash data from the previous hash store.

    • Hash store size
    • Operating mode
    • BranchCache version
  5. Click Modify.
