Help with diagnosing Docker Issues

Running a docker stack deploy on a Windows Server 2016 VM running on a VMware host running ESXi is very slow and fails to start the containers in a timely manner.

The same setup works correctly on a windows host running Hyper-V

Expected Behaviour

Docker containers start within 30 seconds and do not fail during startup

Observed Behaviour

The docker containers fail multiple times on startup. Dump from the windows event log follows:

Is there a solution to this issue? We are unable to run any containers!

I am also unable to run
