    When loading backups located in object storage repositories, Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange will notify you about the location of these backups. You can select the Don't show this message again check box to unsubscribe from such notifications. To enable notifications, select the Show pop-up notifications on startup check box, as described in Configuring Advanced Settings.

    • Go to Start, click Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange and manually open Microsoft Exchange databases, as described in Standalone Databases Management section.

    If you open Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange from the Start menu on a machine that runs the Veeam Backup & Replication console and Veeam Explorers only, specify the following:

    • The domain name or IP address of a server to which you want to connect
    • The port number
    • User account credentials

    Consider the following:

    • To perform recovery operations, Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange must be run with elevated permissions. The user account must be a member of the local Administrators group on the machine where Veeam Explorers Suite is installed.
    • The account must have the Veeam Backup Administrator or Veeam Restore Operator role on the target backup server.

    To use the account under which Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange is running, select Use Windows session authentication.
