    Example 1. Setting Scheduled Switchover for Microsoft SQL Server Database

    This example shows how to set the scheduled switchover for the fiscal database. The switchover will be performed on fiscal 2020-12-4 at 13:00:00.

    $time = Get-Date -Date "2020-12-4 13:00:00"

    $TimeUtc = $time.ToUniversalTime()

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

    $IRDatabase = Get-VESQLIRDatabase -DatabaseName "fiscal"

    Set-VESQLIRDatabase -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-VESQLIRSwitchoverOptions cmdlet. Specify the Scheduled parameter and specify the SwitchingTimeUtc parameter value. Save the result to the $ScheduledSwitch variable.
    4. Run the Get-VESQLIRDatabase cmdlet. Specify the DatabaseName parameter value. Save the result to the $IRDatabase variable.
    5. Run the Set-VESQLIRDatabase cmdlet. Specify the following options:
    • Set the $IRDatabase as the Database parameter value.
    • Set the $ScheduledSwitch as the SwitchOverOptions parameter value.
