CIFS Homedirectories + AD 2008 + Snapdrive for Win2008

Hi,

Question1:

From the functionalities I see that Homedirectories is not supported in S-Family.

By enabling it through telnet/console does this cause a problem to the systems configuration and stabilty?

Question2:

When will AD 2008 be supported by the S-Family, currently the support table doesn't include support?

Quesion3:

SnapDrive 6.0 for normal FAS range supported Windows 2008, but SnapDrive for S-Family does not support Windows 2008 x64, when will this change or does it work?

Don't know about question 1

Storevault support says Feb 2009

Hopefully under Netapp software updates will

Be faster.

If you create an iSCSI drive on a Windows server to use for home folders would that be preferable if you wanted to incoporate backups into an existing backup (in this case backup Exec) job? It looks like the only way to back up a straight share out of StoreVault is to purchase the NDMP option.
