Optional - Reset computers to rerun tests

Updated: March 10, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can use the following procedure to reset the content server and three client computers so that you can rerun the tests in this guide and achieve the expected results.

  1. On Content-01, to automatically delete all content information that BranchCache created during previous tests, restart the BranchCache service by stopping and then starting the service using the following commands at the command prompt:

    1. To stop the BranchCache service, type net stop peerdistsvc, and then press ENTER.

    2. To start the BranchCache service, type net start peerdistsvc, and then press ENTER.

  2. On all three client computers, open Internet Explorer, then click Tools and Internet Options. On the General tab, click Delete. Delete all content in the Browsing History. This action prevents Internet Explorer from loading the IIS 7 Welcome page from the Internet Explorer cache, because the Web page is deleted from the cache.

  3. On all three client computers, delete all BranchCache cached content by using the following command at the command prompt: netsh branchcache flush.

  4. On all three client computers, restart the computer to reset the counters in Performance Monitor.
