Enhance SLC Recovery when CC Engine is back up

I just recently learned this from pmr 93249,442,000. If Control Center is shutdown and then bring it back up it will not go check on a SLC that should have started prior to coming back up. This is an issue. There may have been something important that should have occurred during the down time and this could be missed due to the outage.

If I'm understanding correctly, this can be addressed by installing 6.1 in a high availability environment. However, if not on 6.1 in a high availability environment or on 6.0 or 6.0.0.1, this is not available.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas.

    After careful evaluation we feel that implementing this feature would be very tricky and might lead to false alert. For now we will lean on the addressing this by preferencing HA deployment and with containers it is going to be even more robust. Hence we wont be fixing this in next 12-18 months. However, We might reconsider this in future. Thanks
