Micosoft SQL Server 2019 Standard - AzureAttestService is not starting

I've had a heck of time trying to install Micosoft SQL Server 2019 Standard. I am installing it on VMWARE Environment running ESXI 6.7 (latest revision). I assigned it 4 CPUS (2 Socket 2 cores). 32gb RAM. Upon installing the first thing I ran into was a problem with installer erroring out. In the logs I saw "Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. " Upon investigation, I found KB4530084 which states that installing MS Sql 2019 CU 1 would fix the problem. So I did and I was able to get the server installed. However now I am seeing AzureAttestService is not starting. The service is set to automatic, but it will not start. When I try to start it myself but I get an error stating "Windows could not start the AzureAttestService service on Local Computer. Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion."

Has anyone seen this issue? Anyone know how to get this service started?
