Enabling the Video Caching Feature

Jan 22, 2015

Before you can start using the video caching feature, you must enable it.

To enable video caching
  1. Navigate to the Configuration > Appliance Settings > Network Adapters > Management Settings section and verify that the Primary DNS Server details are accurate and the appliance is able to resolve the DNS name www.Citrix.com.

  2. Navigate to the Configuration > Appliance Settings > Network Adapters > Network Adapters section.
  3. Select an accelerated pair (for example apA).
  4. Click Edit and verify that the IP addresses, network mask, and default gateway IP addresses specified for the accelerated pair are accurate.

  5. Navigate to the Configuration > Appliance Settings > Features page.
  6. Enable Video Caching.
  7. When prompted with a warning message, click OK.

    Note: When you click OK, the service is restarted and a new caching partition is created. If you are enabling the feature for the first time on the appliance, a new partition is created by reducing the disk space allocated to other disk based compression. The disk based compression history is reset, and existing connections are terminated.
  8. Alternatively, you can navigate to the Configuration > Optimization Rules > Video Caching page and click Enable. The service restarts as soon as you enable the feature.
