  5. Select the Use the following backup proxy servers only check box.
  6. Select check boxes next to off-host backup proxies you want to use for the job.

Assigning Off-Host Backup Proxies to Jobs 

When you start the configured job, Veeam Backup & Replication will check the topology scheme of connections for off-host backup proxies that you have selected in the list and choose one of them for the job. If none of these backup proxies can be used for the job and you have selected the Failover to on-host backup mode if no suitable on-host proxies available check box, Veeam Backup & Replication will fail over to the on-host backup mode. If you have not enabled the failover option, the job will fail.
