Shutdown and Rollback questions for Virtualising SharePoint Environment.

Hi,

I have been approached to advise on the following questions regarding virtualisation of my sharepoint environments.      

Are there any particular shut down or start up procedures we need to note?I am presuming 1. Shutdown Front End 2. Shutdown Index Server 3. Shutdown DB servers and the reverse when starting back up virtualised.

Are there any additional rollback tasks that would be required?

I am looked to  cover any aspects i have not forseen here..Any advice is appreciated.

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.
