I am getting up 2012 server, and not sure how to configure network settings.

It is a local network, should I disable the IPv6?

As a rule of thumb in IT, to only enable services and things you really need. You should turn it off, if you are not planing to use IPv6 in your local network.

Thus it leaves off posibilities of errors or security issues. (Firewall, etc.)

If IPv6 is needed later its easy to turn it on when there is demand for it.
