Docker container "stop,restart" hangs docker engine

Hi, Docker community.

I’m having trouble. while trying to stop or restart a container, the command is not performed and hang up.

After a period of time the event viewer shows this message:
“Container ad86f938ea54c6fa9d30002d21abdea03527bafe3a96253dc28e7719fff1d2dc failed to exit within 30 seconds of signal 15 - using the force”

And the container hangs up. To solve it I have to restart docker service.

This is a new install on a nested virtualization of Windows Server 2019 Standard on vmware 6.7. We only have one container.

I have downgraded vmware tools and upgraded to the latest June release with no effect at all.

I did isntall the container with process isolation and hyperv isolation with the same results.

I have tried to find the answer but did not find anything useful. The only way to get Docker commands to work again is to restart docker service.
