Upgrading server hardware on existing failover pair

To gracefully bring down the server and notify the partner I use this 

omshell << EOF
new control
set state = 2

which I found at <http://barryp.org/blog/entries/dhcp-failover/>.  If 
you look at the logs of the server that stays up you'll see that it gets 
the notification and moves into a "partner-down" state.
