Fedora - any version of it - is not designed to be a high availability
solution.  Period.  This is a FAQ and clearly documented in the project
objectives.  I won't go so far as to say you can't make it work, but it
will by luck or your hard effort, not because Fedora was designed for
stability.  If you really want high availability, start with one of the
enterprise releases.  If you want to go without support (which you're
obviously prepared to do with 7.3, 9, and Fedora), then consider one of
the RHEL rebuilds (Centos, White Box Linux, Tao, etc.).
