To obtain the database file from the VM backup, you can use any data recovery feature available in Veeam Backup & Replication, such as Instant VM Recovery, full VM restore, restore of guest OS files from replica and so on. However, the most convenient method is to use the guest OS file-level recovery option.
To obtain Microsoft Exchange database files manually, do the following:
- Perform guest-OS files restore for the virtualized Microsoft Exchange server.
- In the Veeam Backup browser, double-click the .edb file, or on the Home tab of the ribbon menu, select Application Items > Exchange Items.
- Selected database will be opened in Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange application. To learn more, see Browsing, Searching and Viewing Items.
