    I need to perform a complete restore from a backup.

    I understand everything I need to do except the "Give Ip Address (only if recreating)" option.

    The server I am restoring has several IP's and the accounts that are to be restored each used particular IP's. Would enabling the "Give Ip Address (only if recreating)" when performing the restore re-assign the previous IP to the restored account or is this needed to performed manually after the restore?

    Can anyone please tell me if I should enable this option or not when performing a multiple account restore and what difference it makes whether it is enable or disabled.

    Many thanks guys.
