I am trying to setup a s2d cluster within a virtual hyper-v hyper-converged setup with two vms, but when attempting to enable-clusters2d it gets hung up at 27% with "Waiting until SBL disks are surfaced"

Dell? Firmware. Make sure your firmware is up to date.
What is the East-West fabric (between nodes)?

My solution to this when I worked on it was to disable-cluster2d, then I re-created the vhdx files, and enable-cluster2d again.

See this blog which outlines the process for creating a guest cluster with S2D:
What hypervisor are you running the VMs on? Hyper-V? VMware? Azure? AWS?

I am having the same issue.... I have tried it several times.... each time with new VM Builds

@Doug Swanson Did you get this resolved?
How are the VHDX files being exposed to the S2D VM Nodes?
Sep 06 2018 01:46 PM
When you recreated the VHDX files,
1. Did you create them all individually? Or, did you create one and copy it to all the others? Or some combination?
2. Are these fixed or dynamically expanding VHDX disks?
3. Are you using Windows Server 2016 or 2019? In Windows Server 2019, there is an additional .MHT file for enabling S2D that may give you some hints as to the issue.
4. Did all the S2D tests in Validation pass?
