Hi, Is there some way to stop or prevent MS Server 2008 DNS Server from adding IPv6 name resolution records for the A records and other records for the hosts ? It appears to add these  IPv6 records automatically.  The site/company has disabled IPv6 from all of the NICs, but for some reason MS DNS server still adds these IPv6 name records to the hosts (which causes other problems) ...

TIA,

ew

Hi

Check your DHCP server configuration and be sure that IPv6 on your DHCP server isn't causing the problem.

Subsequently, if you want to disable IPv6, the "proper" way to turn it off is to disable it through the registry. Here's how:
• Open the Registry Editor (run command regedit)
• Navigate to the following key: HKLM > System > CurrentControlSet > Services > TCPIP6 > Parameters
• Create a new DWORD value named DisabledComponents (case sensitive)
• Modify the DisabledComponents value and set it to 0xffffffff (hexadecimal - that's 8 (F)s).
• Reboot the machine to apply the changes.
