Issues After Disabling IPv6 on Your NIC on SBS 2008


If you uncheck the IPv6 protocol from your network interface card on your Windows SBS 2008 server you may see the following issues after a reboot:


  • Microsoft Exchange services fail to start
  • Server hangs at “Applying Computer Settings…”  (can eventually logon after 30 – 60 minutes)
  • Network icons show as offline
  • Some or all of the following events
