In the Sharepoint Health Report, I'm getting an error saying that 'Distributed cache service is not enabled in this deployment.' The resolution seems simple enough: Add-SPDistributedCacheServiceInstance in PowerShell. HOWEVER, when I go to: CA>Application Management>Manage Services on Server, I see that Distributed Cache is already started. I'm not sure what the disconnect is. How can it be both running and not running?

Delete the entry from the Health Analyzer report and see if it comes back. Sometimes these reports do not auto-clear.
