Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Failover to Network Mode

You can instruct Veeam Backup & Replication to switch to the Network transport mode and transfer VM data over LAN if the primary transport mode — Direct storage access or Virtual appliance — cannot be used for some reason. This option is enabled by default to ensure that jobs and tasks can be completed successfully in any situation.

Note that data transport over LAN puts additional load on your production network and may potentially affect performance if you accomplish data protection and disaster recovery tasks in business hours.
