Publilshing/Republishing Network Dataset

When you publish a Network Dataset for a routing service to ArcGIS Server, do you need the Feature Dataset (and associated Feature Class(es)) or can you just put the XXX_ND and associated file up on the Server?


When you rebuild that _ND with more current data, can you just stop your NAService and copy the newer data over your data or does this require republishing to the ArcServer?  I imagine republishing is the safer way to go but....


We overwrite a lot of file geodatabases with current data on our Servers where we have map services pointing to the gdbs with very few problems as long as we stop and restart the map services correctly.


Just curious if Network Datasets and published NAServices are as flexible?
