Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5

Using VeeamZIP File

To obtain database from a VeeamZIP file, you can use full VM recovery or guest OS file-level recovery for the virtualized domain controller (Active Directory Domain Services server).

To add a database file to the Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory scope directly from the mounted VM file system, do the following:

  1. Perform guest-OS files restore for the virtualized Microsoft Exchange server. See the Using Backup or Replica File section.
  2. In the navigation tree of the Backup Browser, choose a folder containing database files and click Open in Explorer on the Backup Browser toolbar. The target directory will be opened using Windows Explorer. Then, copy the full path to the target directory to the clipboard.
  3. Launch Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory and add the database file from the backup that was mounted to the Veeam Backup server. For details, see Adding Database to Veeam Explorer's Scope.

Using VeeamZIP File Note:

If you choose to restore Active Directory objects directly from the mounted VM file system, do not close the Backup Browser until you finish restore operations. Closing the Backup Browser automatically unmounts the file system of the backed up VM.
