Goal

The Sun Fire[TM] System Controller (SSC) provides management functionality and clock to the Sun Fire platform.

If the master SSC (usually SSC0) fails and the system includes two SSCs, clock and management functionality have to fail over to the spare SSC.

This document explains the commands added to firmware 5.13.X and above which allow manual control over failover between the main and spare SSC.
