Using Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory

You can use Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory to restore Microsoft Active Directory objects from any successfully created backup or replica of a virtualized Microsoft Active Directory Server. The backup or replica must be created with application-aware processing enabled and the corresponding options turned on.

To launch Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory from Veeam Backup & Replication:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the Backups or Replicas node.
  3. In the working area, select the necessary machine in the backup or VM replica and click Application Items > Microsoft Active Directory on the ribbon.

You can also right-click the machine or VM replica and select Restore application items > Microsoft Active Directory objects.

  1. Veeam Backup & Replication will open the Microsoft Active Directory Object Restore wizard. You can use this wizard to automatically extract the Microsoft Active Directory database from the backup or replica and open it in Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory.
