Ticket #5515 (new defect)
Builtin DHCP server does not pick up setting update once started

I have several hosts that I want to connect with each other without access to the outside world. So all hosts use host-only networking. One of the hosts provides PXE and DHCP, so I went to File -> Preferences -> Network and edited the settings for the host-only networking. In the tab of the DHCP Server I disabled the DHCP server. Then I started my management server (fixed IP address in the proper range), configured DHCP with a range outside the default range for host-only and started one of the client hosts. PXE went well and the OS was installed. When the client host requested an IP-address, it was served with an address from the builtin DHCP server although I disabled this server. Stopping all clients and restarting VirtualBox did not solve this. After a reboot of the host system, the DHCP server was truly disabled and the client was served with an address from my management server.
