Disable IPv6

Hi All,

I have begun deploying OpenDNS to clients and have now come across the issue where if IPv6 is enabled on the domain/lan/network OpenDNS will not work.

My question is this, what is the best way to disable IPv6 across the network and also are there any potential pitfalls I need to avoid, I have read a few scary stories of DNS/AD not working well together after removal of IPv6 and maybe even server not booting at all.

Thanks
Gareth

You can disbale IPv6 using the Registry. Once you have the Reg file that disabled IPv6, you can then distribute this Reg file using Group Policy Preferences. The link below outlines all of the IPv6 Registry entries.
