You won't need to reinstall the Client software, but the following instances
require logging the Client in again at the backup computer.

1) If the client was logged-in using multicast (Retrospect's default method
for finding clients on the same local subnet), and it now has an IP address
is a different subnet, it will need to be logged-in using either direct-IP
or subnet broadcast.

2) If the client was logged-in using direct-IP, and it now has a dynamic
address, it will need to be logged in using either multicast (local subnet)
or subnet broadcast (if it's in a different subnet).

[The direct-IP and subnet broadcast client discovery features require
Retrospect Server Backup if the Retrospect host is a computer running

Hope this helps!
