DHCP Interface assignment

Looking at the DHCP scopes on the Sonicwall, how does one specify the interface for the scope? When creating a new scope, I see Interface Pre-Populate shows up. Looking at the guide, it states "To populate the Lease Time, Default Gateway, and Subnet Mask fields with default values for a certain interface, select Interface Pre-Populate near the bottom of the dialog." Is this specifically where you assign a scope to an interface? Also it appears that once a scope is created, it cannot be changed to a different interface without deleting and re-assigning I assume?

    @djhurt1 ,
    Based on the IP assignment on the interface, the DHCP scope gets applied to the respective interface. Interface pre-populate helps you to auto-fill the necessary fields from the interface IP assignment. So, honestly every scope should be bound to one interface based on the IP assigned to that interface.

    If you have a specific requirement, please let us know.
