There is only one file which is currently still `unique' to the SCM,


If you have a copy of that file on another server, the other server can
replace the SCM. The /vice/db/scm file needs to be updated on all
servers, and the updateclnt/updatesrv daemons need to be restarted
(/etc/rc.d/init.d/update.init restart)
