Step 3. Specify Password Restore Options

At this step, specify the manner in which you want your passwords to be restored.

Consider the following when restoring passwords:

  • When providing a new password for the account that is being restored, check that it complies with the password policy in your production environment.
  • If you select Restore password or Set password to options, you may also request a user to change the password at next log on.

Mind that this setting will not take effect if a user is not allowed to change the password due to security limitations.

  • When restoring multiple accounts, a new password will be set for all the accounts altogether.
  • To restore account passwords, Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory uses registry database. Make sure that the System registry hive is available.

The default location is %systemroot%\System32\Config.

  • When restoring Active Directory database from an Active Directory backup file using Veeam file-level restore, the registry hive will be located automatically. Otherwise, make sure the system registry hive is located in the same folder as .DIT file.
