How to Disable IPV6 on Windows

May 15, 2013 at 10:47 am Leave a comment

Dear Folks

Some of us will encounter the below error message on a DNS server installed on Windows 2008 / 2012




But this is not a real problem ,and there will be no technical glitches based on this also Microsoft do not recommend disabling the IPV6 on Windows and Exchange servers.

Still if you want to hide this error you could do either of the below option

Option 1

1.identify the name of the LAN connection using ipconfig(in my LAB the name of the connection is “Local Area Connection”

2. netsh interface ipv6 delete dnsserver “Local Area Connection” ::1


1.netsh interface ipv6 show interfaces

2.netsh interface ipv6 delete dnsserver name=”IDX#” address=::1

NOTE:- Keep reading on IPV6 and Microsoft guidelines and discussion since these are getting updated frequently

Good Luck..
