When specifying the Caching Service configuration provider, there are two options available:

  2. SQL Server Distributed Cache Configuration Store Provider – Caching Service configuration information is stored in a SQL Server database.

  • Choose XML for Workgroup scenarios
  • If your computer is part of a workgroup, you must change the Caching Service account. Use a local account that exists on all computers participating in the cluster and use the same password for the account on all computers. For configuration, the local account must have local administrator privileges, and must not be a built-in account. This step is not necessary for domain-joined machines.
