proxmox 5.3 and external IP pool

Hello gents,

I started with testing of latest proxmox 5.3 version this week and seems like mostly everything works great, exept that I can't find option, which could assign (manually or auto) IP from given predefined pool.

Test env:

1 bare metal server, pool of 30 real IPs. Standart install, without Openvswitch. KVM only guest instances, installed from ISO.

Maby I'm going wrong way, and you can suggest right direction (i.e. using Cloud-init with openvswitch and qcow images only)?

There is no place where you can set an IP Pool for VM. You have done this manually.
