How to prevent IPv6 addresses from being registered in DNS server

In my environment I have a Windows 2003 and 2008 DNS server, currently we are net using IPV6 but sometimes when referencing my servers internal DNS name the request pulls the IPV6 address, I have uncheck IPV6 in the network interface and then deleted the A record from DNS but the A record keeps coming back in DNS is there a way to stop this?

Thanks

Windows 2008 uses Ipv6 now

Your DNS server is on the 2008 server?

can you do an ipconfig /all and post

Go to dns management on the server that is registering its dns.

Right click the server name in DNS and click properties

Select the interfaces tab..

Unselect the ipv6 address.


Also.

Go to you network adapter on the same server right click it and go to properties.
Select tcpipv6 and select properties
Go to advanced
Go to dns
Urns elect register in dns at the bottom

You can complete disable the tcpipv6 under the properties if you are not using it.
