Mount-DiskImage powershell cmdlet fails on WindowsServerCore:ltsc2019 to mount an .iso image

I am trying to mount an .iso image inside of a WindowsServerCore:ltsc2019 container using the PowerShell cmdlet: Mount-DiskImage . However, the mount operation fails with the following error:

A virtual disk support provider for the specified file was not found.

I tried with a Windows Server Base OS image as well and i face the same error on a Windows base OS image as well.

I did like to know if the cmdlet Mount-DiskImage is supported inside of a Windows container. If not, what is the alternative to mount an .iso image inside of a Windows container?

Here is the error:

Mount-DiskImage : A virtual disk support provider for the specified file was not found.

Hello there,

Does anyone have an idea of how this could be accomplished?
