Snapshots can be used to create disks or VMs. Snapshots are a photography of a particular state of the disk at a certain point of time. As such it is not necessary to restore them on a particular VM.

If you want to preserve the existing IP address the VM is using, you can always:

1) reserve the IP 2) delete the original VM 3) spin a new one from the snapshot and re-assign the original IP.

Certainly this procedure take a couple of steps, but if you think doing it directly would be beneficial, you can submit a feature request
