IPV6 address in DNS WIN 7

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
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..

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.

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

So it registered once you pinged it?
