Why is this so?"

We think it is because, in a restore-based move, you're moving to a new physical server (new hardware) that will have a different MAC address (and potentially a new network address), but that TFSAdminUtil won't correctly point to the new physical server if you try and run it using the old server name to point to a new server.
