Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) : installing and Configuring on 2 VMs


In this article, we will see how to set up Storage Spaces Direct under two VMs.

S2D is the solution hyperconverged of Microcrost arrival with Windows Server 2016.

I also took advantage of this lab to use Admin Center.


  • Have a domain controller
  • Two servers (VM) under Windows 2016 Datacenter with 4 disks dedicated to S2D.

Due to the use of a cluster with two nodes, the storage pool will be mirrored.

With two servers, you can only create two-way mirrored volumes (compare with distributed RAID-1).

The 2 nodes of the cluster were installed without GUI.
