BranchCache configuration not working

Dear all,

 

I recently configured the BranchCache feature on one of our vServers.

I configured it according to the procedures provided by Netapp.

 

Somehow the Windows 7 clients do not use the BranchCache feature when accessing data on a share that has BranchCache enabled. When trying with a Windows server fileshare it works.

 

When looking at the statistics I get the following failures

 

branchcache_hash_fetch_fail                                     2

 

The following is the configuration:

 

                                 Vserver: <name>
          Supported BranchCache Versions: enable_all
                      Path to Hash Store: /BCHashes
          Maximum Size of the Hash Store: 20GB
Encryption Key Used to Secure the Hashes: -
        CIFS BranchCache Operating Modes: all_shares

 

And this is the share config:

 

                                      Vserver: <name>
                                        Share: BC_Test
                     CIFS Server NetBIOS Name: <name>
                                         Path: /BC_Test
                             Share Properties: branchcache
                                               browsable
                                               changenotify
                                               oplocks
                           Symlink Properties: enable
                                               read_only
                      File Mode Creation Mask: -
                 Directory Mode Creation Mask: -
                                Share Comment: -
                                    Share ACL: <users having access>
                File Attribute Cache Lifetime: -
                                  Volume Name: BC_Test
                                Offline Files: manual
                Vscan File-Operations Profile: standard
            Maximum Tree Connections on Share: 4294967295
                   UNIX Group for File Create: -

 

What am I overlooking Smiley Happy

 

Thanks in advance
