Disk-image/machine-image backup support for VM-Series

User-created disk-image/machine-image backups to restore a VM-series firewall instance are not supported across all hypervisors, including public cloud platforms. This includes all functions that allow creating a copy of the disk and memory state of the instance.
To restore a VM-Series firewall, import a backup of the PAN-OS configuration on to a newly deployed VM-series firewall instance from a base image file or from the public cloud marketplace.
