 DHCP agent

You can run a DHCP server that allocates IP addresses to virtual machines that run on the network. When a subnet is created, by default, the subnet has DHCP enabled.

The node that runs the DHCP agent should run:

neutron-dhcp-agent --config-file NEUTRON_CONFIG_FILE --config-file DHCP_CONFIG_FILE

Currently the DHCP agent uses dnsmasq to perform that static address assignment.

You must configure a driver that matches the plug-in that runs on the service.
