SBS 2008 Install does ipv4 conflict with ipv6?

Hi,

I am installing a SBS2008 server next week, the last time i installed one was a few years back and it had intermittent network/internet problems. To fix the problem i was advised to disable ipv6 via the registry and that solved all the issues.

My question is, will i still need to do this or should it all work now?

cheers,
Steven

I've never had to disable IPv6 on any SBS 08 install I have ever done and I've done quite a few, so you should be fine.

Agreed, disabling it is NOT a good idea... it usually BREAKS SBS to disable.  And I've forgotten if this was an SBS 08 or SBS 11 issue, but TECHNICALLY, at least in 11, even if you disable IPv6 against advice, you still use the same networking stack (IPv4 uses the IPv6 stack).
