Step 4. Specify Password Restore Options

In this article

    At this step, select one of the following options:

    • Restore password. To restore the password from the backup file.
    • Set password to. To set a new password.
    • Do not restore password. To skip restoring the password.

    This option will not make any changes to the currently configured passwords in your environment.

    Consider the following:

    • When providing a new password, 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.

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
