Description:  

This policy setting specifies whether the client computer should use the Distributed Cache mode.
This BranchCache mode enables a client computer to retrieve content that has been downloaded and cached
by other client computers in the branch office. To access cached content from other client computers in the
branch, the computer must have permissions to access the content on the source server.

This policy setting specifies whether the Distributed Cache mode is used. Enable this policy setting when
using BranchCache in branch offices for which there is no server acting as a hosted cache.

If you enable this policy setting, the Distributed Cache mode is used. For this policy setting to take effect,
you also need to enable the "Turn on BranchCache" policy setting.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the Distributed Cache mode is turned off.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista.
