The CSCCache property controls client-side caching for file shares on a server cluster. Client-side caching enables network users to access files on file shares, even when the client computer is disconnected from the network. This behavior occurs because the files are cached on the client computer.
Configure client-side caching by using the Cluster Resource command-line tool (Cluster.exe)To use the Cluster.exe command-line tool to configure client-side caching for a File Share resource, run the Cluster.exe command with the CscCache private property. Specify one of the following values for the CscCache private property to set the client-side caching setting that you want:
cluster.exe resource "usershare" /priv csccache=16For more information about how hotfix packages are named, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
