Examples

New-VESQLIRSwitchOverOptionsExample 1. Defining Scheduled Switchover Option

This example shows how to define a scheduled switchover option. The switchover schedule is set to 2023-11-24 13:00:00.

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

$TimeUtc = $time.ToUniversalTime()

$ScheduledSwitch = New-VESQLIRSwitchOverOptions -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() method. Save the result to the $TimeUtc variable.
  3. Run the New-VESQLIRSwitchOverOptions cmdlet. Provide the Scheduled parameter. Set the $TimeUtc variable as the SwitchingTimeUtc parameter value.
