[Starlingx-discuss] Use of sysinv_api_bind_ip and sysinv_api_pxeboot_ip, Difference ?

The address is assigned for pxeboot:

controller-0:~$ sudo grep -r /etc 2>/dev/null
/etc/hosts:        pxecontroller

The address gets added to the mgmt interface on the active controller, for responding to pxeboot/dhcp requests from hosts during installation from the active controller. Sysinv binds to the address so that it can respond to limited API queries and notifications that occur during the installation process.

This IP is provided by Automatic Private IP Addressing. This process assigns an IP address even in the absence of a DHCP server. If a DISCOVER message is not answered, the client picks a random 16-bit number and prepends it with 169.254.x.x. It performs a gratuitous ARP and assigns that address to itself. It means that the DHCP server is not reachable.

I have noticed that sysinv is trying to listen to 6385 with 2 different IPs.
I dont know, How came in etc/sysinv/sysinv.conf, I could not find that IP in hiera.

Error from /var/log/sysinv.log
2018-11-26 08:46:09.298 18046 INFO oslo.service.wsgi [-] sysinv_api listening on<>
ERROR oslo.service.wsgi [-] Could not bind to<>


Somebody please explain the use of sysinv_api() and sysinv_pxe()
