Searching Active Directory Objects

You can use the search field at the top of the preview pane to find any items that match certain specified search criteria. To set up a search scope you can select a container within which you want to find something. The search engine of Veeam allows you to use logical upper-cased operators such as AND, OR, and NOT. The search mechanism is based upon looking throughout the items that contain any entries that match the search query. For example, according to the figure below, the search request for group policy will return the objects with names and/or attribute values containing the words group and policy, not the group policy as the exact phrase. To find the exact phrase, use double quotes, for example, “group policy”. Search results will be displayed in the preview pane.

Using LDAP Queries

Using LDAP queries is another way to find items you need. To use the LDAP search query, do the following:

  1. Select a container in the navigation tree.
  2. On the Home tab, click Use LDAP Filter on the toolbar to switch to the corresponding search mode.
  3. In the search field, enter the LDAP query and click the search icon.

Searching Active Directory Objects Note:

When entering LDAP query without switching to the corresponding search mode, no results will be returned. If your LDAP query syntax is incorrect, you will get an error message. For detailed information about LDAP query syntax, see the Search Filter Syntax article.
