To work with database files, Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange requires a special dynamic link library ese.dll, which is shipped with Microsoft Exchange.
The ese.dll file must be of the same version as the Microsoft Exchange application with which your database files have been created.
When restoring a VM that was backed up with application-aware image processing, the ese.dll file will be located automatically.
The following versions of Microsoft Exchange are supported:
- Microsoft Exchange 2019
- Microsoft Exchange 2016
- Microsoft Exchange 2013
- Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1, SP2 and SP3
To specify the path to the ese.dll file, do the following:
- Go to the main menu and click the General Options.
- Got to the Extensible Storage Engine tab.
- Click the link next to the Microsoft Exchange version and specify the path to the ese.dll file.
The file can be found on the Microsoft Exchange Server distribution CD at X:\Setup\ServerRoles\Common\ese.dll or, in the installation directory of the Microsoft Exchange server.
