I am trying to install WSL 2 feature on Windows Server 2022 Standard (virtual machine) with build 20348.1070 described in

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-on-server. Unfortunately, I am still getting error message on screen.

I tried following things:

  • switch from Ubuntu to Debian distro
  • Install all Windows updates
  • additionally enable HyperV
  • Set automatic startup for LxssManager service
  • use command Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux

Thanks for advice
