my stack keeps giving DHCP to my network

How do I keep my devstack setup from thinking it's a dhcp server? I am planning to assign IPs manually to instances from a pool of static IPs I have been assigned. However I am finding it's handing IPs to other machines on the subnet.

dnsmasq is excluding lo. Should I also get it to exclude eth0? if so, where? Or is there a better way to turn off this behavior?

If you are using Neutron, you can disable dhcp in devstack by adding the following in local.conf (or localrc):

disable_service q-dhcp

Please refer to and for more information on how to configure your devstack installation.
