FrameMaker Server 8 in a cluster server

Does anyone have any experience with FrameMaker Server 8 (or previous versions) running in a cluster server?
Also, if anybody has implemented FrameMaker Server 8 running unattended in any kind of server --be it a High Performance, High Availability or any other configuration-- please feel free to comment.
Thanks

Arnis,
First of all, thanks for replying.
I am aware that the only difference between FM and FM Server is the licensing. Adobe requires a Server license for any unattended use of FrameMaker.
The server environment, and specifically a clustered server, is a client requirement. They are especially sensitive about their High Availability setup. Since FrameMaker isn't "cluster-aware", we have had to establish control procedures to continue any process that has been interrupted when the active server in the cluster is either shut down or moved into passive mode.
We are producing PDF, RTF and printed output, processing XML streams. We use FrameMaker Server 8, driven by FrameScript scripts. Given your experience, do you see anything wrong with our setup? There is a budgetary issue which doesn't allow the Miramo product to be an option. Also, we do not build documents from database query/report procedures.
Again, thanks for your input.
Juan
