The only way I know of is, don't use the console port on the sparc for
your inter-machine link. :-( Or, arrange for the "main server" to not
generate a break condition on that line when it's shut down....

(I think). If the machines sits at the PROM prompt too long, I've had
these fail; it hasn't happened often enough for me to have any definite
idea how long is "too long".
