There are a lot of conflicting articles on the net about weather or not disabling IPv6 will create issues with Exchange Server. From my experience i typically do not disable IPv6 because I usually run into issues at some point and it usually points back to when i disabled IPv6.

Also take a look at a PAQ from Glen Knight which also outlines similar details.

Hi,

It's recommended to have IPV6 enabled coz of the nature of issues it poses to the Hub transport service.

To avoid any issues with hub transport, you better have IPV6 enabled irrespective of using it.

IPV4 and IPV6 kept enabled, wont at all affect your DNS and web traffic. so just keep it enabled... It's not going to harm anything.

Thanks & Regards
