Restoring Application Items from Microsoft Active Directory

Veeam Backup Free Edition integrates with Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory. Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory lets you browse Microsoft Active Directory databases in VMs located on storage snapshots and restore Microsoft Active Directory items (objects and containers) and their attributes back to the production Microsoft Active Directory database.

Before you start working with Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory, you need to extract a Microsoft Active Directory database from the storage snapshot. You can do it in two ways:

  • You can use the Microsoft Active Directory Object Restore wizard. In this case, Veeam Backup Free Edition will automatically extract a Microsoft Active Directory database from the storage snapshot and open it in Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory. For more information, see Using Microsoft Active Directory Object Restore Wizard.
  • You can restore VM guest OS files from a backup of a virtualized Microsoft Active Directory server, manually locate a Microsoft Active Directory database and open it in Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory. For more information, see Opening Microsoft Active Directory Database Manually.
