Disable BranchCache on a single SMB share

Contributors

If you do not want to offer caching services on certain shares that previously offered cached content, you can disable BranchCache on an existing SMB share.

Step
  1. Enter the following command: vserver cifs share properties remove -vserver vserver_name -share-name share_name -share-properties branchcache

    The BranchCache share property is removed. Other applied share properties remain in effect.

Example

The following command disables BranchCache on an existing SMB share named “data2”:

cluster1::> vserver cifs share show -vserver vs1 -share-name data2

                      Vserver: vs1
                        Share: data2
     CIFS Server NetBIOS Name: VS1
                         Path: /data2
             Share Properties: oplocks
                               browsable
                               changenotify
                               attributecache
                               branchcache
