To add database files manually, do the following:
- Open Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory and click Add Database on the toolbar.
- Provide the location of the Active Directory database file and, if required, the folder containing corresponding transaction log files (Edb.log and Edb.chk). By default, Active Directory database file (NTDS.DIT) is located in the %SystemRoot%\NTDS directory.
- Click Open and wait for the operation to complete.
Make sure the System registry hive is located in the same folder as NTDS.DIT.
