    Below are the steps that we have completed

    configuring Host guardian service (VM - technical preview TP2)
    Configure the tenant hyper V Host
    Create Shield VM - (GEN 2 Guest OS is technical preview TP2)
    Followed the steps in section 7.2 till 6 step (which is to add-vtpm to gen 2 VM)

    After enabling VTPM to gen 2 VM , We couldnt start the Virtual Machine and got the below error:

    "ShieldVM' TPM (Instance ID 736E6AA9-A3F8-49C0-9550-A963214D259A): Failed to initialize with error 'Generic failure' (0x80041001). (Virtual machine ID 096B8CAE-4EB5-4D38-B88C-B362BDB56C7D)"
