Second machine creation : Waiting for ssh to be available... win10+hyperv

Hi all,
I’m currently doing this tutorial : and having some trouble during the creation of the SECOND (the first works well) virtual machine : docker-machine create -d hyperv --hyperv-virtual-switch "myswitch" myvm2.
I created the virtual switch external with “allow management operating system to share this network adapter”.
I’m on Win10 with hyperV, PowerShell on administrator mode.
Thanks in advance!

Here is the debug trace for docker-machine create -d hyperv --hyperv-virtual-switch "myswitch" myvm2:

Try using the docker-machine –native-ssh switch.

e.g. `docker-machine --native-ssh create -d hyperv --hyperv-virtual-switch “myswitch” myvm2

Hi, I have the same issue but event with the --native-ssh the docker-machine hung on the VM creation and it is not possible to access it. I have already lookup an answer to this situation and it seems that it is an issue related to the OpenSSH with Windows, but I don’t know how to solve that situation, should I install a specific version or maybe install an alternative like try to install ssh with chocolatey?
