I'm trying to do a backup from SQL Server 2012 to Azure (free account), but I'm getting this error:
'URL' is not a recognized Device Type option
I´m writing the instruction like this:
BACKUP DATABASE DB_Verifica TO URL = N'https://myaccount.blob.core.windows.net/myContainer/MyDatabase.bak' WITH CREDENTIAL = 'SQLBackups'; GO
The size of the DB is small (less than 2 GB), I'm just trying out the Azure services.
The SQL Server 2012 does not recognize the word URL, I looked up for a solution on the web and I founded I was needing the SP1 Compact 2 or later versions to install, so I installed the mos recently version of SP1 Compact 4 and.. did not work.
Do you have any suggestions to solve my problem?
Thank you so much in advance!
