 A virtual machine that is connected to DVDs.
 A virtual machine with no disks attached.
 A virtual machine that was not removed from the inventory.
 A virtual machine that has RDM attached to a Buslogic controller.
vCloud Director

 A virtual machine used for testing purposes.
 A virtual machine with no disks attached.
 A virtual machine created in and managed by vCD.
Hyper-V
 A virtual machine with a VRA installed on it (VM VRA).
 A virtual machine on a host that has no VRA installed.
 A virtual machine that was created after performing a Failover Test.
 A virtual machine that is connected to DVDs.
 A virtual machine with no disks attached.

 Native VMs launched with AWS Marketplace cannot be protected.
