Does activation care about IP's assigned to interfaces?

I found out the hard way that activation uses the ETH ports config as part of the activation key process when it deactivated my machine when I re-ordered the ports. I think I have those assignments worked out but I need to know if the activation process uses IP assigned to those ports as well?
I bought a package and I want to install it but not if I need to use another activation.

it has been our experience that the activation process does not use the ip address. what you could have done is change the mac addresses so that they matched your original config. i.e that the mac address of the NIC that connects to the internet is the same as a the mac of the internet NIC on your old config.

but given where you are now, just go to the portal, remove the registration and then re-register the new system.
