Use PowerShell to check the Branch Cache hash cache

Here’s a tip from my colleague Ed Wilson (the Microsoft Scripting Guy) about how to use PowerShell to check the Branch Cache hash cache:

Question: You want to check the Branch Cache hash cache on several remote Windows 8.1 computers. How can you do this?

Answer: First create a CIM session to the remote computers. Next use the Get-BCHashCache cmdlet to retrieve the information. Feed the Get-BCHashCache the CIM session. An example of this appears here:

$cim = New-CimSession -ComputerName c1,c2,c3 -Credential nwtraders\admin

Get-BCHashCache –cimsession $cim
