local cache directory in multi-server AGS site

We are implementing a new ArcGIS Server 10.2.2 infrastructure with 2 servers in one AGS site.  Several map services will use cached map tiles.  We would like each server to have a local copy of each of the caches (if we move the data to a shared location, we are forced to pay for backups which would be prohibitively expensive) but when I try to set up a cache directory through Manager, I get an error message from the other server:

Failed to register the server directory 'local'. Server machine xxxxxx returned an error. 'Unable to access the server directory 'd:\xxxxxx\cache'

 

The directory I'm trying to register has been created on both ArcGIS servers and I have assigned read/write permission to the directory for the ArcGIS Server account.

Is it possible to configure ArcGIS server in this way, so that each server would look in it's own D drive for the cache?
