Hey, Can anyone explain to me how to find the Update that changed firewall settings on our Exchange Server. We had  automatic updates enabled and several changes were made. IPv6 was disabled and changes were made to the firewall that I cant seem to track down. Any Suggestions

Only thing you can really do is look at the "Recently Installed Updates" and either remove them or look at the details of each update and see what the fix or modify on the system after they are applied. May take awhile but thats all you can really do.

Even if you find and remove the update that modified the firewall settings it probably will not undo the changes that the update did when it was applied.

I have never known an update to change the firewall settings.
You also shouldn't have IPv6 disabled - that isn't a supported configuration from Microsoft.
The most an update might have done is enable the firewall again, but I haven't heard that was the case recently.
