Disabling IPv6 via registry
On Windows 2008, you can create a registry key for disabling IPv6. You can then include this registry key in a BLPackage and deploy the BLPackage to target servers.
- Create or modify the following registry key to disable IPv6 on Windows 2008:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\TCPIP6\Parameters DisabledComponents - set the value to 000000ff
- Create a BLPackage by live browsing to the registry key that you created in the previous step, right-clicking it, and selecting Add to Depot As > BLPackage.
- After creating the BLPackage, set the registry key value according to the value specified in the previous step.
- Deploy the BLPackage against a test server to validate that deployment and rollback work successfully.
