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.
- Is BranchCache Enabled
- Is the Service Running
- Is BranchCache operating in Distributed Cache mode
The following PowerShell commands are included within the configuration items.
$bcstat = get-bcstatus | Select-Object -Property BranchCacheIsEnabled
$bcsrv = get-bcstatus | Select-Object -Property BranchCacheServiceStatus
$bmode = get-bcstatus | Select-Object -ExpandProperty ClientConfiguration
The result is as following (when all is compliant.
Or as following when things are NOT Compliant.
