I'm trying to setup Cobbler for PXE booting and I want it to also manage DHCP. The issue is I only want one of the two available NICs to manage DHCP. Is there a way to specify which NIC Cobbler will use for DHCP? Thank you.

Are both nics attached to the same subnet? If not, do you have scopes setup for both subnets?

DHCP servers will only server clients on interfaces that have a valid address within one of the defined scopes.
