Running HyperV on separate network adapter causes problems

I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 box that has two network adapters in it.  192.168.1.1 is the network adapter for the OS and I used the installed second network adapter in the server to handle HyperV to balance the load.  I gave this second NIC 192.168.1.4.  I installed Hyper V and created a virtual switch that used this second network adapter.  I have a virtual machine running on this virtual switch and it grabs an IP from DHCP.

The problem I am seeing is that it seems like some services on the host server will run on 192.168.1.1 and some will run on 192.168.1.4.  For example, the host server is a DHCP server too but DHCP is running on 192.168.1.4 for some reason.  I think there are other services that are listening on 192.168.1.4 also but I am not sure how to tell.  I want everything on the host OS to run on 192.168.1.1

Bottom line is, how can I get the host server to use 192.168.1.1 for all services it is hosting (DHCP, other apps, etc) and 192.168.1.4 for only the virtual switch in HyperV?

Deselect the option in your Virtual Switch that allows the management (host) operating system to share this network adapter.Capture.JPG-saige-

another way could be open DHCP manager and go to IPV4 Properties\advanced \ Binding tab and deselect the unwanted adapter, so that DHCP will not accept request on that NIC
Restart the DHCP server service

Thanks. Deselecting the checkbox shown allowed all services to run on the proper IP address.  Thanks everyone.
