I have node running nova-network w/Flat dhcp manager. I added the "dns_server" flag to my nova conf with a valid upstream server. I restarted nova-network however the dnsmasq pids did not get the --server= flag appened to the cmd string.

I then stopped nova-network, manually killed the dnsmasq pid and started nova-network at which point dnsmasq was started with the proper flags. This seems like a bug but wanted to check before opening one.

as you says,when changeing a flag releated to dnsmasq,you need first kill dnsmasq process,and then restart nova-network to make changes works.but it is not necessary to kill dnsmasq process,when restart nova-network.
