Verifying Client Cache Settings on a Client with ConfigMgr 1606

In my last Blog Post, I described a minor Issue with the newly added “Client Cache Settings” in ConfigMgr 1606. Now that I got the “Client Cache Settings” working, I noticed that the Configuration Manager Control Panel Applet, stopped showing the actual Cache Size.

Even though I run the Applet as an Administrator, the managed Client Cache Size never got displayed. I actually can’t tell if this was done intentionally or if this is a Bug. However, at this point I started wondering if the Client Cache Settings really got applied on that System.

Luckily, using PowerShell and WMI, we can easily check the Client Cache Size:

Run the following PowerShell Script in an elevated PowerShell Prompt:

CacheClientSettingVerify_Part2

This value should correspond with the Value that you specified in your Client Settings.

CacheClientSettingVerify_Part3

Based on my Tests, the Client will always apply the smaller Value that you specify. As you see I entered a Static Value of “12000 MB” and a Dynamic Value of 80% of the Disk Space, which would be 48000 MB on the above Test System.
