Physical media servers are not supported on VM media servers, but because VTL is disk an not real tape, it will work. (Veritas uses VTL on VMs in their training.)
I'm not sure if there is an official support statement for VTL and VM. Probably because VTL is 'ancient' technology and modern backup applications such as NBU knows how to use disk properly.
The NBU HCL confirms that HP VLS 9200 is supported on Windows 2008, 2012, 2016.
