Feature: roll back a successful Cutover

Feature: roll back a successful Cutover

I believe and have observed that most customers work under pressure, tight deadlines, etc...and do not have the time to perform a Test Cutover, involve their team to find a way to make it work as it should on the Target, fix manually the stuff that PlateSpin would not have been able to configure, etc...then mark the Test Cutover as success, and the day of the real Cutover, do it all over again.

Besides, most customers cannot even run a real Test Cutover since the Target must come online on the same domain as Source to perform some test, which requires downtime of the Source to be performed.

So, what do they do? They wait for a cutover window, run a real cutover, test the Target, and if it needs to be rolled back (due to applications not working, etc...), they reconfigure the workload via incremental to the existing Target, then call me so I can give them back a license since the workload license is now assigned to the Target.

A lot of extra stuff (AKA waste of time) that could be resolved by adding an option, after a successful Cutover, to roll it back.

I have also seen such scenarios. It would be great if we can have the retrieval / rollback mechanism inorder to the process more simpler only when genuine rollback is sensed.
