Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
Veeam Backup Explorers User Guide

Required Backup Job Settings

This section describes backup job settings you should configure in Veeam Backup & Replication to be able to restore mail data from the image-level Exchange VM backup. If you want to use Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange to work with backups created Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, refer to this User Guide.

If you plan to explore and recover the necessary database from the backup of your Exchange server VM, you should enable application-aware image processing for that VM and specify application-specific job settings, as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide for the corresponding platform.

Required Backup Job Settings 

Remember that by default Exchange transaction logs will be truncated upon successful backup. If you want to keep them for further processing by a third-party application, then select the Exchange server VM from the list, click Edit and then on the General tab select Perform copy only (lets another application use logs).

Support for Database Availability Groups (DAG)

Veeam Backup & Replication supports any configuration of DAGs, in particular, with all databases active on one node, or with active databases on every node. Transaction logs will be truncated on all DAG members, no matter whether Veeam backups an active or passive database.
