The current IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager Automated System Recovery Process supports Networks that are DHCP enabled. In networks that does not support DHCP and uses Static IP's, the local backup sets are used to recover these systems in case of a crash or total failure.

In very large environments, servers cannot be ported on DHCP network as the applications hosted in the servers are IP conscious. A typical example of such an environment would be a datacenter with multiple application servers that access multiple database servers. In these environments, the servers are configured with static IP's. This article describes an Automated System Recovery process which facilitates system recovery in Static IP environments.
