This should work even in trial mode.
Are you using a 64 or 32bit operating system? Direct-to-cloud is only supported on 64bit (https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/doc/37874213-138079521-0/v135196090-138079521).
At this point, I'm not sure why that option is greyed out. Can I just go back to your other comment ..
Hi, we are evaluating Veritas System Recovery Basic Edition Trial and can't select our Azure storage acccount as the backup destination
So what happens exactly when you try to browse to your Azure account?
Could you try the following please:
As you type in the path for Azure, you should notice that the box below (where it says Destination Details) switches from Local destination to OpenStorage destination.
Type in azure:azure.com/
Once you put in the '/', that is when it recognises it's a cloud path rather than standard disk/UNC path.
Looks like you are missing the button (on right side below the browse button) for cloud for some reason.
You can try the following to see if it helps:
Please note that renaming the history and schedule folders will mean that you lose existing backup jobs and history information for backups that have already ran.
