Add a new CI Type for VMware Appliance

When discovering a VMware Appliance there will be running software attached to a 'dummy node'.  That is, a 'placeholder' node which will never be able to be logged in to via any shell credential.  This request is to create a new CI Type called VMware Appliance for those CIs.  It would make it much easier to exclude these CIs from other discovery jobs (e.g. host connection by shell).
