Hi,

i have added a Win Server 2012 DC (VM) to my domain and moved all the FSMO roles to it.

i have also moved the DHCP server from a Win Server 2008 R2 DC VM to the 2012 DC VM.

i have IP6 enabled on my network and my DHCP server on the 2008 R2 used to hand out IPV6 addresses no problems.

for the 2102 DC VM to give out IPV6 address the following setting needs to be enabled:

netsh int ipv6 set int 12  advertise=enabled

after about 20 minutes the DCHP IPV6 server stops giving out IP addresses - any IPV6 addresses given out are lost.

if i disable and re-enable advertising then the DCHP ipv6 server starts giving out addresses again.

If i reboot the Win Server 2012 VM then the advertise=enabled setting is lost.

below are the ipv6 nic settings.

C:\>netsh int ipv6 show int 12

hi,

thanks for getting back to me.

i am not sure if this helps, but in DHCPv-Client Event, Event ID 1006 - it says:
Router Advertisement settings have been changed on the network adapter 12. The current M - Managed Address Configuration flag is true and the O - Other Stateful Configuration flag is false. User Action: If you are seeing this event frequently, then it could be due to frequent change in M and O flag settings on the router in the network. Please contact your network administrator to have it resolved.

does this shed any light on the matter?

thanks

my draytek router was also advertising DHCP ipv6 addresses - once I stopped that - the problem went away
