Backup Oracle and NFS vol in same job?

Im wondering if there is a mechanism in the newer versions of SnapCenter to backup an oracle database and at the same time backup a related NFS volume.


We have an app with an Oracle back end, to get a proper application consistent backup we'd shut down the app, snapshot the oracle DB, and the NFS application at the same time (or as close as since its shut down at this point), then bring all the services back up. Now the stopping and starting of services we can use pre and post scripts in a policy...but do I really need to have two seperate jobs to backup one thing? There's got to be a way to manage it with one policy/job/setup....surely? We cant be in a unique position of wanting to this sort of thing.
