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:
  • 0: If you set CscCache to 0, the changes in only those files that are specifically identified on the file share are reconciled between the client and the server cluster.
  • 16: if you set CscCache to 16, the changes in all the files that are opened on the client are reconciled between the client and the server cluster.
  • 32: If you set CscCache to 32, client-side caching is disabled for the files that are opened, but are not modified.
  • 48: If you set CscCache to 48, client-side caching is disabled for all the files that are on the file share.
For example, to automatically reconcile the changes for all the files on a file share resource that is named UserShare, type the following line at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
cluster.exe resource "usershare" /priv csccache=16
