Opening Microsoft Exchange Database Manually
If Veeam Backup & Replication fails to locate a Microsoft Exchange database automatically for some reason, you can use the file-level restore functionality to restore a Microsoft Exchange database from the storage snapshot. You can then open the database in Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange.
To restore application items from Microsoft Exchange:
- Restore VM guest OS files from a backup of a virtualized Microsoft Exchange server. For more information, see Restoring VM Guest OS Files (Microsoft Windows).
- In the Veeam Backup browser, locate an EDB file and double-click it or select the EDB file and click Application Items > Microsoft Exchange on the ribbon.
Veeam Backup & Replication will open the selected database in Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange. After that, you can browse the database and restore items that you need.
Detailed information about Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange is provided in documentation for Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange. To access the documentation, do one of the following:
- Open Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange and press [F1].
- Open Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange. From the main menu of Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange, select Help > Online Help.
