That should not be needed. If the netrestrict file was correct, and the 
fileserver actually restarted, it should have corrected the addresses in 
the vldb.

Can we see your NetRestrict file and the FileLog? Are you sure the 
netrestrict file is in the right place? (/usr/afs/local or equivalent, NOT 
/usr/afs/etc where CellServDB/ThisCell/KeyFile/Userlist are)

If you do this (or the delentry trick) and the fileserver isn't 
correctly configured yet, the bad addresses will just come back.
