I just took on a new client that has an SBS 2011 server. In reviewing the setup for the server the first thing I noticed is the IPV6 checkbox for the NIC was disabled. My understanding is Windows Server wants IPV6 enabled so that things continue working smoothly. This server has DNS issues, so I enabled IPV6, but it defaults to a dynamically assigned IP address. BPA is complaining the address should be static. I ran Fix My Network, but it did not change it to a static address.
So, my question is how can I change it to a static address. The IPV4 address for the server is 192.168.1.2, Mask 255.255.255.0. Should the IPV4 192.168.1.2 be converted to IPV6 and should I enter it there, or should the IPV6 be different? I looked at other SBS2011 servers that I manage, and they have static info defined for IPV6. I never messed around with it since it was setup that way by default. I basically need to know what to put for the IPV6 when the IPV4 IP is 192.168.1.2. Thanks.
