I've had a couple of instances were Windows 10 is being allocated IPv6 addresses despite there not being a IPv6 DHCP Server on the network.  It's caused some Domain connectivity issues.  Anyone else seen anything similar to this?

I haven't run into that but one option is to disable IPv6 on the network adapter from Windows.
Control panel > network and sharing > change adapter settings > properties > uncheck IPv6.

That is an IPv6 site-local address. MS recommends against disabling IPv6. I would add IPv6 range to DHCP (https://www.ultratools.com/tools/rangeGenerator) because site-local addresses sometimes contains the MAC address

That's what we've been doing, disabling IPv6.  I've struggled to find any other information about the problem which is why I've asked really.

@Shaun, thank you for the site local address info
