When a san shapshot is done to refresh a database, what are the options to boot the instance out, put the new snapshot in place and start the services again.?

For example, server1 has database1; server2 has database1; now the san snapshot has to capture server1.database1 and instantly copy it to server2.database1 so that the server2 data is accurate and refreshed (mirrored, if you will). But server2.database1 will be live. How to stop it and make the san snapshot to move the frozen data files to the new location? what techniques are employed to make this happen?
