ArcGIS Server (10.4+) cluster shared directory architecture

Talking with Esri Support, and looking at documentation, it seems like the only supported architecture for a 2+ node ArcGIS Server cluster is using a network share for the config-store and other arcgisserver directories.  


I'm curious if anyone has had success with using Microsoft Windows Server Cluster Shared Volume ( ) instead?  


This is a feature of Windows Server 2008 R2 and above that can operate as another shared location between two or more servers - Esri support tells me a network share is the only supported architecture, but I'm curious if that's because they haven't fully tested Cluster Shared Volume, or actually found issues with using Cluster Shared Volume.
