Well, no need to enter anything manually. We have on each big brother
server a page with links to all the other bb servers, and I'm sure the
support folks have links bookmarked, so if the DC1 data center is
down, then instead of clicking on e.g. dc1bbdata, they'd click on
dc2bbdata. Normally the 2 bb display servers in each pair provide an
identical view, so this only matters in the event of an outage.
