To add databases manually, do the following:
- Open Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory.
- On the ribbon menu, go to the Home tab and click Add Database.
- Specify the location of the Active Directory database file and, if required, the folder containing corresponding transaction log files (Edb.log and Edb.chk).
- Click Open.
By default, Active Directory database file (NTDS.DIT) is located in the %SystemRoot%\NTDS directory. Make sure that the System registry hive is located in the same directory.
