Issue with log rate limits in TAS 2.13.20 & 2.13.21- There is a known issue with Apps Manager in TAS 2.13.20 and 2.13.21 where the Apps Manager requires the fields for log rate limiting, but the CAPI is not able to handle that field. TAS 2.13.22 is now available fixing this issue.
Upgrade to 2.13.20 is failing with no space left on device- When trying to install TAS version 2.13.20 and Cloud Controller VM is one of the types having a 32 GB disk (Eg: xlarge), you may see the error during upgrade that indicates the disk got filled up. R&D is still investigating. Workaround is in the KB article.
VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG)
CSI: Correct sync between CSI pod secret and workload_storage_management user password (87375) - VMware engineering teams are currently working to RCA this issue. If you run into this issue, please open a case with VMware support and include a Workload Management Log bundle.

Workaround in this KB should be performed with support engineer guidance.

Connect-VIServer failed with "command was found in the module VMware.VimAutomation.Core, but the module could not be loaded" - PowerCLI is a collection of PowerShell Modules to manage VMware infrastructure. It is not fully supported In TKGI v1.10, which could cause mount issues of persistent volumes to the worker node with CBT enabled. So, we can use PowerCLI to disable CBT in the worker vm. Check the KB article for the details.
