    • Gateway, DNS and CIDR must be populated for static/pool IP assignment
    • Select Allow IP Override to allow selecting between DHCP, Static entry and Pool Selection at provision time
    • Deselect DHCP server if a DHCP server will not be used on the network (only static and/or IP Pool IP assignment)
