Simple steps to recovery

  • Browse

    Browse your AD database right from your domain controller backup
  • Search

    Use an LDAP filter to quickly find individual objects and attributes you need to restore
  • Recover

    Recover the selected items directly to their original location or export them to an LDIFDE format

Save time and find what you need

Restoring from Microsoft Active Directory can be complicated. First, you must restore the VM that hosts your Active Directory domain controller, then you have to use the AD restore mode to recover what you need.

Now with Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory, you can quickly and easily browse your AD database (.DIT) right from the backup of your domain controller VM and then find and restore what you need. You can restore it directly to the original location or export it to LDIFDE format: it’s up to you. Simple!

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory, included into new and free Veeam Backup & Replication Community Edition, you can:

  • Find, view and compare containers, objects and attributes directly in the domain controller backup
  • Restore individual object attributes and entire objects to their original location or to a different AD database
  • Export objects as LDIFDE files
  • Restore user and computer account passwords to avoid any impact on users and applications

It’s because of Veeam that we’ve been able to restore critical systems in minutes, like Active Directory, which plays a major role in our identity management program. Before Veeam, we worried about being able to reinstate access privileges. With Veeam we just roll back to the previous backup and restore in minutes.
