When I try pinging my servers it gives me this:
Pinging servername [2002:b01c:1824::b01c:1824] with 32
> bytes of
>  ata:

> 2002:b01c:1824::b01c:1824: time<1ms

Is this a MAC or a IPv6 address?  Windows Server 2008 prefers IPv6 over IPv4 if available?
I disabled the IPv6 on all the servers and still see same replies.  Do I need to remove those records from DNS?

Please advice.
Thanks.

IPv6 address.  If you're getting replies then you have at least 1 device on your network that is IPv6.  2008 Server doesn't really care if you use either protocol, but it enables both by default.  You can remove IPv6 by simply unchecking it in the NICs settings.

Got it.  So do  I need to remove DNS records?  I want to see IPv4 replies when I ping.
I did remove IPv6 in NIC settings but didn't help.  Still see these replies.

this is IPV6 address. better way is to disable IPV6 from registry completly

http://eitwebguru.com/disable-ipv6-components-on-windows-vista-windows-7-and-windows-server-2008/


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesTcpip6Parameters]
“DisabledComponents”=dword:000000ff

This is IPv6 which is made with Prefix + MAC + Infix (FFFE). So don't get confused.

:-)

Mac never reply in bytes format.

So looks like a Mac address though.

I dunno why everyone is in such a rush to disable IPv6.
That address is actually IPv6 over IPv4 using a transitional technique called 6to4.
the 2002: means it's 6to4. and the next two words, b01c:1824:: are the HEX version of you IPv4 address.

This allows you to talk to IPv6 hosts even if you only have IPv4.

BTW, I see no FF:FE in that address.

If you don't want transitional tunnel adapters you can disable them like this:-

netsh interface teredo set state disabled
netsh interface ipv6 6to4 set state state=disabled undoonstop=disabled
netsh interface ipv6 isatap set state state=disabled

BTW, if you want to see an IPV4 response you should tell ping that is what you want.
eg
ping -4 servername
