Is NBU 8.1 master running in a KVM linux guest supported?

I've done a few searches and checked the compatibility guide, to see if I can install an NBU master on a KVM guest. The master will not be a media server. The plan is to have 2, metro-clustered physical servers (with replicated SAN storage) dedicated to host NB master VM, and use in-house failover tools to failover NB master to DR.

Thanks

    See this topic: General NetBackup support in virtual environments 

    General guidelines for support
    Veritas provides support for NetBackup within a virtual environment. For the purpose
    of this document, a “virtual environment” is defined as: any on-site, off-site, or public
    cloud IaaS virtualization solution where NetBackup can be installed into a supported
    guest operating system.
    NetBackup has an open support policy for virtualization platforms, as follows:
    ■ NetBackup is qualified on physical configurations.
    ■ If the same configuration can be virtualized, it is supported without explicit
    qualification on the virtualization platform (unless otherwise noted in this
    document).
    The published NetBackup software and hardware compatibility listings reflect this
    support policy. The listings are available here:

    Note the following limitations of NetBackup support within a virtual environment:
