Suppose we have two servers and an external stoage space. If the server where the Remote Agent is installed, fails during a backup job then there is no way for Backup Exec Server to connect to the other server(even if the Remote Server(Virtual Machine based on the servers) is in clustered environment). You would have to rely on the previous backup sets for restore. The job will fail with Loss of Connection.  hope you can overcome this in a next release to allow a high availability even in backup and restore. Our Clients always ask about such solutions.
