First off, I want to apologize for my Commvault ignorance. I don't have access to CV, so some of the terminology confuses me. I searched the forum, and either my answer isn't there or it is but I don't know enough about Commvault to recognize it.
I'm trying to confirm that what I'm wanting to do, can be done, before I start begging for access.
We have a small SharePoint farm consisting of one (1) SharePoint server, a SQL Server with multiple Failover Cluster Instances, one of which is dedicated to SharePoint
Each month I'm required to apply Windows OS security patches, and SharePoint security patches to the SharePoint server. Of course any SharePoint patch may or may not update the SQL databases.
Downtime is not a problem. At the beginning of the downtime, I need a way to capture the state of the SharePoint farm, when they are in sync, both, data that's stored on the server file system, as well as in the applications databases.
In the docs I see mention of both, using a Pseudo-client, and Application Aware backup, but I don't understand if either would be useful or if special licensing is needed for that functionality.
My goal is to have, in case the patching fails, a simple roll-back process with zero data loss, that is safe and leaves us in a supported state with Microsoft.
Thanks for taking the time to read my post,
