    Thank you for the feedback! This is not something we are currently planning on doing, as the guidance from Windows Server Storage team is not use cluster shared volumes for general purpose file servers. You can read more about their rationale here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/filecab/2013/12/05/to-scale-out-or-not-to-scale-out-that-is-the-question/

    We are aware that many folks are currently use CSVs/SOFS for general purpose file shares against the recommendation of the Windows Server team, so we are still open to considering this item. Please continue to vote for it so we can understand what the demand is here.

    Also, if you’re one of those customers that are would like to use CSVs/SOFS for general purpose file servers, please go hassle Ned Pyle and the Windows Server Storage team at their UserVoice here: https://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/295056-storage/filters/top

    Thanks,
