Hi, as far as shutdown is concerned, first bring down the SharePoint servers and then the SQL.

If you are talking about rollback, the rollback should be happening for all. Otherwise there might be discrepancies between the files (custom solutions) on your SharePoint Server and the database.

So you can't rollback a SharePointServer where you took a snapshot in 2012 with a SQL snapshot of 2011. In some cases you can, but it's not adviseable.
