Mixed consistency group between LUN and File System VNX

Hello all, I have a question: with a Database environment, for a single DB are used LUNs  and File system from a unified VNX. I'd like to know how it's possible to ensure the data consistency betwenn all the LUNs and files used by the DB. Looking for the documentations and other discussions, I founded responses for full block or for full nas environments but never a mixed of the both.... I understand that the filesystems are basicly luns, but protecting only at block level, the complet application "hot protection", including both block and file parts is not possible. Thanks for your ideas and experiences.

I think you could use scripting with naviseccli to manage quasi-consistent snapshots of both but I don't imagine another solution.

Re: Mixed consistency group between LUN and File System VNX

Thank you Alvaro for this response,

My problem is that the fonction exists  with a concurrent array and I'd like to purpose a VNX in place.

But it's an idea. If you have an example of the script, don't hesitate to share with me
