ConfigMgr–Compliance Baseline for BranchCache on Windows 8

Here’s a ConfigMgr Compliance baseline that checks the BranchCache configuration on Windows 8 clients. With the release of Windows 8 and Server 2012 Microsoft also made available PowerShell cmdlets for BranchCache, so creating a script based configuration item in ConfigMgr becomes a pretty straight forward task.

The below Compliance Baseline checks the following 3 things.

  1. Is BranchCache Enabled
  2. Is the Service Running
  3. Is BranchCache operating in Distributed Cache mode


The following PowerShell commands are included within the configuration items.

The result is as following (when all is compliant.



Or as following when things are NOT Compliant.
