Hello. I'm setting up a cluster to do a POC to check if we can use Rancher to run our windows docker images. I have set up a Rancher on an separate K3s cluster. In Rancher i created a new rke2 cluster. With version v1.23.7+rke2r2. There are 3 linux Control Planes. They work perfectly. 1 Windows agent was added based on Server 2019. I added the container and hyper-v features in windows. The node is running in Rancher and is green. When i try to run a windows container on that node, It fails with the message failed to create containerd task: failed to create shim: hcs::CreateComputeSystem 4c94c11d23498ae7b56845b9a074ba99387e4ea12e947e052f8a2d32b752931c: The directory name is invalid.: unknown I have no clue what this is and how to fix this. Does this ring a bell to someone?
after updating windows server 2019 to the latest version, everything starts to work

hi. could you explain how and what you did in order to add container features? Or just point to some doc. I'm looking into this since i plan to migrate away from docker into containerd
