Example

Setting Scheduled Switchover of Oracle Database

This example shows how to set the scheduled switchover for the orcl database. The cmdlet will perform the switchover at 13:00:00 on 2023-11-24.

$time = Get-Date -Date "2023-12-4 13:00:00"

$TimeUtc = $time.ToUniversalTime()

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

$IRDatabase = Get-VEORIRDatabase -DatabaseName "orcl"

Set-VEORIRDatabase -Database $IRDatabase -SwitchOverOptions $ScheduledSwitch

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. Use the ToUniversalTime() method to convert the date and time to the UTC format.
  3. Run the New-VEORIRSwitchOverOptions cmdlet. Provide the Scheduled parameter. Set the $TimeUtc variable as the SwitchingTimeUtc parameter value. Save the result to the $ScheduledSwitch variable.
  4. Run the Get-VEORIRDatabase cmdlet. Specify the DatabaseName parameter value. Save the result to the $IRDatabase variable.
  5. Run the Set-VEORIRDatabase cmdlet. Specify the following options:
  • Set the $IRDatabase variable as the Database parameter value.
  • Specify the $ScheduledSwitch variable as the SwitchOverOptions parameter value.
