Stop automatic caching on all SMB shares

Contributors

If your BranchCache configuration automatically enables caching on all SMB shares on each storage virtual machine (SVM), you can modify the BranchCache configuration to stop automatically caching content for all SMB shares.

About this task

To stop automatic caching on all SMB shares, you change the BranchCache operating mode to per-share caching.

Steps
  1. Configure BranchCache to stop automatic caching on all SMB shares: vserver cifs branchcache modify -vserver vserver_name -operating-mode per-share

  2. Verify that the BranchCache configuration is correct: vserver cifs branchcache show -vserver vserver_name

Example

The following command changes the BranchCache configuration on storage virtual machine (SVM, formerly known as Vserver) vs1 to stop automatic caching on all SMB shares:

cluster1::> vserver cifs branchcache modify -vserver vs1 -operating-mode per-share

cluster1::> vserver cifs branchcache show -vserver vs1

                                 Vserver: vs1
