Clearing Sierra Jarcache
What is the Sierra jarcache?
The Sierra jarcache runs Sierra. The jarcache contains about 74 files.
Why would I clear the jarcache?
The jarcache should be cleared for the following reasons:
If Sierra is running slower than normal.
If you have trouble logging into Sierra.
Trouble with Sierra functions that used to work normally.
When there is a problem with Sierra, but it only happens on a certain computer no matter who logs into Sierra.
Will I need to do this for everyone's Sierra login?
No. Clearing the jarcache is related to the computer and not the Sierra login. Once the jarcache is cleared anyone can log into Sierra.
Note: Expresslane self checks are the same as regular Sierra desktop stations, and need to have their jarcache checked periodically.
