Distributed Cache Role Configuration Steps

Occasional Contributor


I am setting up SP 2019 Farm topology (1*1*1*1) with separate SQL DB server.

1 dedicated Role for Distributed Cache Service (total 16 GB RAM) as shown in below screen shot...

So, After this setup, What ELSE do  i need to do further :

  1. Change Service Accounts 
  2. Do i need to adjust memory allocation also compulsorily ??

Any suggestion please 
Thanks ...

Once you install it, it's reccomended to change the service account and you can find out how to do so here >

If you want to update the distributed cache memory, the instructions are here . There's also instructions in there on how to set it up with a dedicated one, and MS reccomends for a 16GB Server to set it up at 7168 MB
