SCB Redundancy

If two SCBs are installed in an SRX 5600 services gateway, one SCB functions as the master SCB and the other as its backup. If the master fails or is removed, the backup becomes the master.

On SRX 5800 services gateways, SCBs installed in slots 0 and 1 provide nonredundant fabric connections. A third installed SCB in slot 2/6 provides fabric redundancy but no additional control or routing functions.
