Creating image of a linux system with static IP address, when restored it's dynamic

I create an image of a linux desktop using Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5.  Our linux desktop has a static IP address to work with a specific router configuration.  When I restore the image to another linux desktop (identical hardware) the static IP configuration is lost and the IP is set to dynamic (DHCP I think).  This means I have to manually set the IP back to the static IP address on each machine.  Since we're going to use this to clone hundreds of linux pc's, setting the IP to static by hand is a huge problem.

Is there a way to have the image restoration keep the static IP address setting?

Thanks,
