An administrator that performs maintenance and operational tasks might need to start and stop the Distributed Cache service. Some of these tasks include the following:
•Changing the default configuration of the server farm at installation time. The Distributed Cache service is started on all SharePoint servers at installation time. An administrator might want to stop the Distributed Cache service on some servers in the farm.
•Updating the server and there is only one Distributed Cache server in the SharePoint Server 2013 farm.
