    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 off-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.
