Hello, I have a Windows 2012 server that I would like to disable, or not use IPv6 on. The server is the acting Domain Controller. When I uncheck IPv6 in the network settings, under the DNS panel for Reverse lookup zones, the server is unable to resolve itself as a nameserver. I used to be able to uncheck IPv6 and modify the "disabledcomponents" registry key in windows 2008 R2 to essentially remove IPv6 from my internal network. I did check and all of the IPv4 records for the server are in DNS. I don't have a DHCP scope or range for IPv6 configured internally, because I would prefer to not use it.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've been looking online and haven't found much on this topic that pertains to my situation.
This was the article I used to follow for my 2008 R2 servers http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929852
I wouldn't mind if it was still enabled, just not active. The issue before was IPv6 caused communication problems between my servers and the only fix was to turn it off. I have read a few articles claiming that if you turn IPv6 off in 2012, it will cause core issues with the server.
