Opening Microsoft Active Directory Database Manually

If Veeam Backup & Replication fails to locate a Microsoft Active Directory database automatically for some reason, you can use the file-level restore functionality to restore a Microsoft Active Directory database from the storage snapshot. You can then open the database in Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory.

To restore application items from Microsoft Active Directory:

  1. Restore VM guest OS files from a backup of a virtualized Microsoft Active Directory server. For more information, see Restoring VM Guest OS Files (Microsoft Windows).
  2. In the Veeam Backup browser, locate a Microsoft Active Directory database file (NTDS.dit) and double-click it or select the NTDS.dit file and click Application Items > Microsoft Active Directory on the ribbon.

Veeam Backup & Replication will open the database in Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory. After that, you can browse the database and restore Microsoft Active Directory objects.

Detailed information about Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory is provided in documentation for Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory. To access the documentation, do one of the following:

  • Open Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory and press [F1].
  • Open Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory. From the main menu of Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory, select Help > Online Help.
