IPV6 address in DNS WIN 7

encounter a problem on a Windows 7 computer (active directory 2003)
In the DNS console, we only see the IPV6 address displayed
When we run ipconfig /registerdns, IPV4 address appears but disappears after a reboot of the machine...
We try to uncheck IPV6 in the NIC properties of the computer, but it did not change anything...

this behavior is normal? :

With a static IP : the IPV4 and IPV6 is registered in the DNS
With a dynamic IP : only the IPV6 is registered in the DNS..

Can you ping the Win7 machine by name when there is no DNS entry?  Forcing an IPV4 ping?

When you are doing the ipconfig /registerdns, do you have a DHCP lease or a 169.x.x.x address?

IPV6 is the new standard IP Address. Its a normal thing for the newer generation of internet protocol. So don't be suprised if its not there a few years down the road. It was designed to fix a multitude of IP problems.
