UP Core as WiFi hotspot running on Windows 10 IoT Core

I'm attempting to configure an UP Core board as a WiFi hotspot on Windows 10 IoT Core. From a Powershell I've issued the following:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork ssid=<myssid>key=<mypassword> mode=allow

This command succeeds with the following output:

The hosted network mode has been set to allow.
The SSID of the hosted network has been successfully changed.
The user key passphrase of the hosted network has been successfully changed.

So far so good...

Then I try to start the hostnetwork with:

netsh wlan start hostednetwork

Unfortunately this fails with the following:

The hosted network couldn't be started.
The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.

I've tried various options to get the hosted network started as outlined here but have not had any success.

Can the UP Core board be configured as a WiFi hotspt?
