Feature Request - AD Restore Requierement

Veeam Logoby Steven Bricklayer » Tue Nov 21, 2017 9:23 am

Hello,

We can't restore AD object directly with Veeam. We need to restore the account as an LDIF file and to that procedure

https://technet.microsoft.com/fr-fr/lib ... 81(v=ws.10).aspx

The problem is Veeam check that the account used for the restore is member of the group Exchange Organization Administrators

I think you need to be realistic on your pre-requesties, in big companies their are no way that the guy in charge of accounts restore is a member of a so powerfull group.

And you really don't need to be in that group to perform an account creation / modification


Thanks

Hi Steven,

without this role, we can not connect an restored AD user to his mailbox, which will be in the end lead into lot´s of trouble. How do you handle such situations today?

Like I said on my first post, we restore files as LDIF.

And like I said :

Any news / update?

FYI we were able to restore AD account without problem with NetBackup. (+ it didn't took 45 minutes to load the AD database...)

No updates, if the object has a mailbox or at least some mail attributes, it cannot be restored without that permission.

Quick Update.

Thanks to the support team, a solution has been found.

https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95

Just use the "restore to" option, and follow the wizard.

You have a popup telling you that the mailbox wouldn't be able to be reconnect, but you can press "next".

All Sid, Guid, was successfully restored.

And the exchange mailbox was automaticly reconnected.
