what exactly do you wish to accomplish?

AngelIII's code will reset an identity Value to the new (new_seed) value if the identity does not have the NOT FOR REPLICATION clause  also specified on it...

do you want to reset a current identity value?
change the increment?
re-number all existing identity values?

...?

also which version / edition of SQL Server are we dealing with...?
