The Ops Mgr agent running on machines that host Veeam Backup & Replication components must be granted the privilege to insert new objects into Ops Mgr as the Veeam Backup & Replication topology is discovered. This is known as Proxying. Note that Proxy should also be applied if any of the Veeam Backup & Replication components is running on the Ops Mgr Management server.
