Have the private nic disabled while the agent is being installed ?

That would only offer it one card to bind with.

After that re-enable the provate nic.

Just a thought.

Once the private nic is enable you lose communication with the agent.

Also, if you put your preferred nic at the top of the list.  Network Connections > Advanced > Advanced Settings > Connections.  Move the NIC you want to the top.

While I can't quote this as 'by design' it's been my experience that it always binds to whatever the top nic's IP is.

Hope that helps.
