Active Directory Explorer does not show custom object types

Post by Elissen » Jul 12, 2018 1:47 pm

Hello,

We use B&R 9.5 update 3. The Veeam Explorer for Active Directory does not show 'custom' object types. Software like ESET Secure Authentication and Microsoft Exchange store data in the Active Directory and they use custom object types. Things I have seen include (listed below are the object classes as shown by Microsoft Active Directory Users and Computers MMC console):
- esaContainer
- Oracle Context
- Oracle Container
- Oracle Database Enterprise Domain
- msDS-QuotaContainer
- msTPM-InformationObjectsContainer
- msExchSystemObjectsContainer

The System container is also not shown. The problem is that if you cannot see it, you cannot restore it (unless I assume you recover the entire database, but the point of the explorers is you can do partial restores). The feature request is to be able to select any container- and value type so you can restore them.

Kind regards,

Mark Elissen

Hi Mark, Veeam Explorer for Active Directory doesn't display some system containers, indeed. We just cannot guarantee that everything will be fine after restore of such objects. There could be dependencies on some other objects or attributes that Veeam Explorer for Active Directory isn't aware of. But anyway your request is clear and accepted, thanks.

Btw, there's an UNSUPPORTED way to workaround that.

Hi Foggy,

Thanks for the link; it could be very usefull in the future. And I do understand the implications; even a 'show hidden/advanced items' with a very big red warning use at your own risk could be very helpful. But anyway, thanks again for the link.

- Mark
