if the DNAS / host is down there's pretty much nothing you can do unless you have a backup and have it in a round-robin type setup either by using the YP to handle client requests between the DNAS instances for you or you do it yourself.

however, if all you've got is one server, then if that goes down then there is nothing which can be done to keep the stream alive.

as for making sure it automatically starts when the host starts then that would depend on what you're allowed to install and the OS that is running - going with what you prefer / like is the best option in that case.
