There are two SAP Cloud Connectors (SCC) for High Availabity (HA) setup:

https://<Master Instance>:8443/
https://<Shadow Instance>:8443/

If an HTTP GET request is done:

https://<Shadow Instance>:8443/api/v1/configuration/connector/haRole

the following HTTP response comes back:

200 - shadow

While sending an HTTP POST method:

https://<Shadow Instance>:8443/api/v1/configuration/connector/haRole

with json body:

haRole = "master"

the following HTTP response comes back:

 "type": "ILLEGAL_STATE",
 "message": "Illegal setup attempt (role already defined)"
