DFS Export and Recover

I have a question on dfsutil i used this command for the export of the DFS

dfsutil /root:\\example.com\sales  /export:c:\NameSpaceBackups\DateToday\saRoot20.txt

which saves my Link state  Root structure my question is if one of my file servers crash and i do a dfsutil Restore with the following command
dfsutil /root:\\example.com\sales /import:c:\NameSpaceBackups\DateToday\saRoot20.txt /set

isnt this only recovering the names spaces, that it will not add the new server to the Replication group in order to sync with the remaining Server in the Group ?

The DFS Replication and Namespace services are completely independent and have nothing in common. DFSUTIL only manages the namespace.

If you lose a DFS Replication group member, just use the DFS Replication GUI to remove the old member and add in the replacement. DFS-R will then do its thing to replicate all data to the replacement server.
