Setting --dhcp_domain in your nova.conf should be sufficient, but the
currently running dnsmasq process will not be reloaded after adding this

I believe that restarting nova-network should kill and restart the
currently running dnsmasq process (or there may be a more graceful

A 'ps' listing should list dnsmasq with the new --domain option passed
to it.

Hope this helps.
