Hello Chris,

It might be possible, but it depends on which part are missing. We were 
supposed to handle all the possible issues with Virtual Machines, but it 
appears we missed some.

Could you send us an inventory that isn't accepted? You can find them in 
the following folder

Note: you may want to anonymize them, bit replacing ip addresses, 
hostname and CFEngine public key within

Best regards
