The server doesn't care about what is in any of your network config 
files, only what it finds configured on the interfaces.

So what are you using for storage on this diskless server ? The 
reason for asking is that it is not possible to run an RFC-compliant 
server without persistent storage, and with the ISC server that means 
disk (or something that looks like disk). The server won't run if it 
can't write (and re-write) the leases file, and it is not RFC 
compliant if that file is not persistent across restarts, reboots, 
and power offs..
