shared FRS

I know that in 2003 shared folders are not replicated through FRSand also permissions are not included in back up and restore, my question is, how does this affest home user folders that are shared and backed up and restored? Do I need to restore permissions on each user when moved or renamed?

actually it's not the scope of FRS to do this, maybe your referr to DFS (distributed file system)
you can use DFS to replicate folders (permissions are replicated correctly in this case)

I was reading in my 2003 server book that shared folders were not replicated by FRS. I was curious if this also affected the shared home folders as well. Like when all users folders are on a particular drive ( M) drive and you need to back these up, will the permissions still be there since they say in the book that permissions will not be backed up with it. I am not sure if the shared folders and users home folders work the same way. They both are shared. Relication also is not replicating permissions. I am just trying to make sure Iknow the difference.

if you are using the backup utility from win 2003, when you restore the data, the permissions will be preserved
you can replicate data online using DFS service, or you can use a scheduled task and the robocopy utility from resource kit to copy data on other server (in this case, permissions will be preserved, also)
