VMware Tanzu, when configuring Workload Network portgroup, no portgroup is shown

 Just recently i had an issue where i wanted to configure Workload management to test Tanzu I had trouble finding the intended portgroup. It turned out that my vDS was inside a network folder in the vCenter inventory. After moving it out of the folder, i was able to see the portgroups. Hope i could solve this for some of you strunggling ;)  cheers!

PC takes ages to boot and how to look at it

 Just recently i had multiple VMs that took about 20 minutes to boot. There is a very neat tool to analyse the Windows Boot process called xbootmgr Using "xbootmgr -trace boot" I was able to see that "autochk" was taking most time of the boot process.  Googling around lead to the point that autochk thinks that the disk is dirty, may do a checkdisk but doesn´r remove the dirty flag. Solution for me was manually adding that dirty flag to the partition and reboot, causing autochk do fully run a check and finally it cleand up the state. Setting the state is done by calling "fsutil dirty set C:" and if you have multiple partitions you may change the drive letter here. Hope it helps!
