BranchCache version support

Contributors

You should be aware of which BranchCache versions ONTAP supports.

ONTAP supports BranchCache 1 and the enhanced BranchCache 2:

  • When you configure BranchCache on the CIFS server for the storage virtual machine (SVM), you can enable BranchCache 1, BranchCache 2, or all versions.

    By default, all versions are enabled.

  • If you enable only BranchCache 2, the remote office Windows client machines must support BranchCache 2.

    Only SMB 3.0 or later clients support BranchCache 2.

For more information about BranchCache versions, see the Microsoft TechNet Library.
