Is is possible (via command line for example), to create a dhcp agent on a specific host AND give it a specific IP address?

i need the latter mainly because of the fact that i'm using a vlan (dot1q) tagged network where intra-vlan dhcp traffic is blocked unless i exclude it at the router's virtual interface (by ip address).

create the subnet with allocation_pools set to just one address. Neutron will auto schedule to one of your dhcp agents. If it did not pick the right one, you will need to dhcp-agent-network-remove (maybe also port-delete) and dhcp-agent-network-add to correct. Then expand the allocation_pools.

yeah.. that's what i've been doing; unfortunately as the system 'evolves' and dhcp agents get's moved, i would like a way to force it back (without shrinking the subnet allocation and expanding it again)
