    New-VEORIRSwitchOverOptionsExample 1. Creating Scheduled Switchover Option for Oracle Databases

    This example shows how to create a scheduled switchover option.

    $time = Get-Date -Date "2020-11-24 13:00:00Z"

    $TimeUtc = $time.ToUniversalTime()

    $ScheduledSwitch = New-VEORIRSwitchOverOptions -Scheduled -SwitchingTimeUtc $TimeUtc

    Perform the following steps:

    1. Run the Get-Date cmdlet and specify the date and time when the switchover must be performed. Save the result to the $time variable.
    2. Convert the scheduled time to the UTC format using the ToUniversalTime() mehod. Save the result to the $TimeUtc variable.
    3. Run the New-VEORIRSwitchOverOptions cmdlet. Provide the Scheduled parameter. Set the $TimeUtc variable as the SwitchingTimeUtc parameter value.
