how to get RPC over HTTP to work, with IPv6 enabled

I went to testexchangeconnectivity.com and tested exchange, test failed at a place I knew if I disabled IPv6 would pass.  To test I disabled IPv6 and to my surprise RPC over HTTP started working.  iPhones and laptops could connect to the server and remotely send/receive.

Rebooted the server now I am stuck in the dreaded "APPLYING COMPUTER SETTINGS" for about 30 minutes now.

My question is, how do I get RPC over HTTP to work with IPv6 as IPv6 is very crucial to SBS?

Hello,

IPv6 is not required until unless server is not on internet and IPv6 Address can be assigned to serial port only where real IP address required because in any condition, we can never cross the limit of private host range in intranet.

Solution for this problem:
You might have disable IPv6 only from LAN Connection properties. However this is not proper way to disable IPv6 because few services still contact with IP6.

To fix this, you need to disable IPv6 from registry. Please refer to below link:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929852

After disabling from registry, go to DNS>A.D. domain zone and delete entries made of IPv6.

Before proceeding any of the step, take SSD backup.

For any query or concern, kindly let me know.

I would prefer to keep IPv6 enabled.  I have seen to many issues with disabling it, and first time you call microsoft they tell you that it should always be enabled.
