Modifying the BranchCache settings

You can use the CIFS window in System Manager to modify the 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. Click Storage > SVMs.
  2. Select the SVM, and then click SVM Settings.
  3. In the BranchCache tab, click Edit.
  4. In the Modify BranchCache Settings dialog box, modify the required 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.
