IPv6 group policy setting for privacy and address randomization

Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Our campus network requires we set two options on Windows computers for IPv6 using netsh:

netsh interface IPV6 set global randomizeidentifier=disabled store=persistent
netsh interface IPV6 set privacy state=disable store=persistent

I want to propagate this by group policy but would prefer not to have it as a startup script because it really only needs to be run once, not as added baggage to each and every boot. There are several IPv6 settings available in group policy, but these two are not among them.

Does anyone know where these settings are stored or any good way to propagate these settings? I'm hoping to be able to push a registry entry or something like that.

I haven't heard of NSI before, what is that?

Commented:
Network Store Interface; it's an internal array for interface configuration. I shouldn't have mentioned it; it's not publicly available.

Helpful info that there is no other way than netsh to change those settings, but didn't answer the question of how to propagate the setting using AD.
