Restricting external DHCP

I just brought up a new OpenStack install. Our network has a DHCP server that I do _not_ want to use with this setup. When I boot an image it grabs a DHCP address from the existing server and not from the controller. Is there a way tell OpenStack (nova?) to only use it's own DHCP server?

I finally figured this out, and it turns out that I was barking up the wrong tree. The external DHCP address I was getting was only there because the OpenStack DHCP server was not responding. I found the answer here: .

Note that it was a bit more than this! I already had the iptables rule applied that the issue mentions. However, it was applied to virtbr0. I added another rule for all interfaces and that fixed my problem.
