Hi, I need some help in working verifying that the Content server has pushed the shared branch cache folders to the Hosted Branch Cache server. This is what we have done so far? We have setup MS 2012R2 server for the content server and setup Branch Cache Hosted server to host the content from the main site to the remote site. What we don't seem to be able to do is verify that the content was sent to the Branch Cache Hosted server. We are running Hyper-V as a host and then have two 2012 R2 Server as VM's. One is for SCCM secondary site and the other for Branch Cache. Performance Monitor does not show any file access when it is setup to monitor Branch Cache activity. The content server shows the following when trying to publish the content via power shell: PS H:\> Publish-BCFileContent cmdlet Publish-BCFileContent at command pipeline position 1 Supply values for the following parameters: Path: Not sure what path  means ? When running the status command in Power Shell on the Branch Cache server I get the following results: PS H:\> get-bcstatus BranchCacheIsEnabled : True BranchCacheServiceStatus : Running BranchCacheServiceStartType : Automatic ClientConfiguration: CurrentClientMode : LocalCache HostedCacheServerList : HostedCacheDiscoveryEnabled : False ContentServerConfiguration: ContentServerIsEnabled : True HostedCacheServerConfiguration: HostedCacheServerIsEnabled : True ClientAuthenticationMode : Domain HostedCacheScpRegistrationEnabled : True NetworkConfiguration: ContentRetrievalUrlReservationEnabled : True HostedCacheHttpUrlReservationEnabled : True HostedCacheHttpsUrlReservationEnabled : True ContentRetrievalFirewallRulesEnabled : True PeerDiscoveryFirewallRulesEnabled : False HostedCacheServerFirewallRulesEnabled : True HostedCacheClientFirewallRulesEnabled : True HashCache: CacheFileDirectoryPath : Default MaxCacheSizeAsPercentageOfDiskVolume : 1 MaxCacheSizeAsNumberOfBytes : 2678807552 CurrentSizeOnDiskAsNumberOfBytes : 0 CurrentActiveCacheSize : 0 DataCache: CacheFileDirectoryPath : Default MaxCacheSizeAsPercentageOfDiskVolume : 40 MaxCacheSizeAsNumberOfBytes : 107152302080 CurrentSizeOnDiskAsNumberOfBytes : 0 CurrentActiveCacheSize : 0 DataCacheExtensions: Max cache size is set but byte on desk = 0 The Branch Cache file server show content enable because it will also be a used as a file server at the remote office for the users to access shared local documents. Do you have any guides on how to setup and test pulling the files from content server to the Hosted Branch Cache server. We have setup the Group Policies for the Content server and the workstations. The Hosted Branch cache server is enabled with the SCP operand and the folders have been enabled for Branch Cache on the content server. Any help would be appreciated ?
I'm planning an upgrade to sccm 2012. I have multiple sites through out the globe. Most do not have very fast connections. Would I be able to use a cloud DP using Azure and point these clients to that DP? i thought I read somewhere that clients can not download windows updates from Azure,is that true? What functions be available from Azure? Another option I was thinking of at some of these smaller sites was Branch cache. Would I have to designate one client as a branch cache or does every client become a branch cache?
