An alarm is triggered if the state of another selected alarm is changed.

Out-of-date state

An alarm is triggered if Veeam Backup & Replication software components installed on the proxy server are out of date.

Power or connection state changes

An alarm is triggered if the state of proxy server is equal or not equal to the specified value (for example, if connection to the proxy server is lost).
