Identity Seed value

Is there a way to set, on a database basis, the seed value and increment for identity columns?    

Also, I have a set of tables that at some point the seed value seems to have been set to 10000, with increment of 1.   Can a backup/restore cause this?    Can this easily be done, inadvertently?

This is how to do it: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms176057(v=sql.100).aspx

A restore yes, however that is unlikely to go silent in my opinion as you must restore the entire database since 2000 and up.
