Power Automate Desktop - Unattended Failover

I am currently running a power automate desktop flow from a cloud flow. I setup 2 machines, added to a group, and select to run my desktop flow: Run Mode  Unattended. I do have a license to run in unattended mode. Everything works fine when running PAD jobs.

Here are my questions:

  1. I like to know if there is a way to have a load/failover if for any reason the PAD job does not run. For example if job 1 fails on machine 1 then disable machine 1 and run on machine 2. 
  2. For machines or machines groups, is there a way to disable a machine so it doesnt try to run a PAD job while is disable. I see that you can remove it from a group but there is no option to disable a machine.

In Dataverse there is a table that stores FlowMachine Details - check this out it has a status column that can be flipped to mark the machine Inactive or probably can try deleting the machine and creating it back once the issue is fixed.
