How can I configure bamboo such that server restart doesn't stop builds on remote agents

Is there a way to configure a backup or failover bamboo server so I can restart the primary without terminating builds on remote agents? I see bamboo uses ActiveMQ and I though that supports clustering and high availability.

Can I setup a primary bamboo server and a 2ndry which both point to the same database and then configure failover from primary to 2ndry? This would allow me to perform maintenance where I shutdown primary, made my changes, restarted and then repeated on 2ndry without terminating my lengthy builds running on remote agents.

Please let me know if there's a doc that describes how to to do this or if you know it to be unsupported or impossible.

Thanks

Peter

It's not possible at the moment. We are thinking about doing this at some point - currently internal Bamboo structures do not survive restart.

So, I couldn't run two server instances pointing to one DB and set one as the fail over?
