Ensure Environment Prerequisites
Before you start creating caches and cache clusters, you need to ensure that the following criteria have been met:
In the case of ASP.NET Core installation, NCache Service is run with admin credentials. If you provided the required admin credentials at the time of setup installation, then you do not need to run NCache Service as administrator. But, in case you did not, you can do so by following the steps mentioned in the Run NCache Service as Administrator section.
If you have a firewall enabled, then you need to make sure to expose NCache specific ports, the details of which are provided in the Configure Firewall section.
If you have multiple network cards in your cache servers, then you need to ensure that your NCache server is bound to one IP address. To understand how you can bind an IP address to the NCache server, refer to the Configure IP Binding in Multiple NICs section.
If you're using a Distributed Lucene with Persistence In-Memory Store type, it is strongly encouraged that you use an SSD instead of an HDD for optimal performance.
