At this moment we cannot run the clipboard job on VMs.
There was a long investigation in bug 1270962 to see if we could make this job run on VMs.

Given that, our only option is to run the job on real hardware in-house like talos jobs.

I'm filing this bug as a placeholder and make it part of the migration (bug 1141248).

From jmaher:
> the cl (clipboard) job historically doesn't run on VM because the VM has a
> clipboard service which we were not able to disable and that interferes
> with the OS level one causing problems.  If we can show that cl runs
> 40 times in opt/debug e10s/non-e10s without problem (or very rare non
> repeating intermittent) I would be happy to switch it to vm.
Found in triage.

jmaher: do you know if this is still an issue?
Flags: needinfo?(jmaher)
no, we have fixed issues and this runs on VM just fine now.
