You can also add databases (.adb) from the repository that stores Microsoft Exchange Online mail data backed up by Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365.
If you have Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange deployed on different machines, then you can explore backed up Exchange Online databases only if you add them to scope, as described in this section - that is, opening Veeam Explorer first and then connecting to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 server.
Do the following:
- In Veeam Explorer, click Add Store >Veeam Backup for Office 365 server on the Home tab, or right-click All Stores in the navigation pane and select the corresponding shortcut menu command:
- Specify connection settings for the machine where Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 works: provide server name or IP address, service port number (default is 9191) and user account that be used to access that server. You can select to Use Windows credentials if current account has sufficient access rights.
- After you click Connect, Veeam Explorer will connect to the specified server, and Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 will provide the latest state of backed up database(s) present in its repository. Mailboxes can be viewed in Veeam Explorer under the node with the corresponding organization name.
Note that this method will add all databases that were backed up to the repository during the latest run of the backup job(s) configured in Veeam Backup for Office 365. That is, if you have two jobs, each of them processing its own organization, the restore points they create will be kept in the same repository.
If you want to explore, for example, a single database as of the certain point in time, then you can invoke the Add Store dialog and specify path to the .adb file you need. Another way is to use the Explore command in Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, as described in its User Guide.
