FOR WINDOWS 2008


 

In some situations, IPv6 can be an compatibility issue for certain applications running on Windows 2008.  A quick way to completely disable IPv6 on Windows 2008  is to run the command below at cmd prompt [make sure you are loggedin as administrator] then reboot your server.

reg add hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\tcpip6\parameters /v DisabledComponents /t REG_DWORD /d 4294967295

(I used it last day when I was migrating my Active Directory from 2003 to 2008)

 


FOR WINDOWS 7 x64


 

reg add hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\tcpip6\parameters /v DisabledComponents /t REG_DWORD /d 255
