This section lists system requirements for Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory.
Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services
For more information about supported operating systems, see the Supported Applications subsection of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
Consider the following:
- Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory does not support Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS).
- Database files created by the domain controller can be opened for object recovery with Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory only if Veeam Explorer is installed on a Windows machine with the same OS version or later than the version of the domain controller OS.
- To open database files, Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory uses a service dynamic link library (esent.dll) which is installed with Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services and can be found in the %SystemRoot% directory. The Esent.dll file on a machine with Veeam Explorer must be of the same version as that of Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services that was used to create database files.
