The client has a RSA hardware appliance. Current version is v7.0 Patch 2. There is NO 3rd party backup/ snapshot solution in place.
If during patching (e.g. applying patch 3/4/5), for some reason, the patching fails.
How can the system be restored back to the previous operational state? As some part of the patch has already been applied, how will those changes be rolled back?
Note: Assume that DB backup has already been taken prior to patching the server 000029238 - Preferred IMG Database Backup Process
