This IPv6 Test Lab Extension describes how to configure the Corpnet subnet for IPv6-only connectivity. You configure DC1 as a DHCPv6
server and its role as an advertising router for the Corpnet and Corpnet2 subnets, disable IPv4 on all intranet hosts, and then show how all network, Active Directory, and application connectivity works in the IPv6-only environment.
Note These instructions
are designed for a working IPv6 test lab that has been configured based on the instructions in the
Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate IPv6.
If you are running the IPv6 test lab in a virtual environment, you can create snapshots of the virtual machines (VMs) for all of
the test lab computers before performing the following procedure.
Configuring and Demonstrating an IPv6-only Intranet
To configure DC1 as the DHCPv6 server:
netsh interface ipv6 add address Corpnet 2001:db8::1111
netsh interface ipv6 add address Corpnet2 2001:db8:0:2::2222
netsh interface ipv6 set interface Corpnet managedaddress=enable otherstateful=enable
netsh interface ipv6 set interface Corpnet2 managedaddress=enable otherstateful=enable
To configure the Contoso intranet for IPv6-only and demonstrate connectivity:
With this new configuration, all network, Active Directory, and application traffic uses only IPv6 and works the same as in the
Base Configuration test lab, which is IPv4-only.
If you are running the IPv6 test lab in a virtual environment, you can discard the changes made by these procedures by restoring
the previously made snapshots of the VMs for all of the computers in the test lab. Alternately, if you would like return to this working configuration using IPv6-only, you can create a new set of snapshots before restoring the previously made snapshots.
To manually restore the configuration of the IPv6 test lab, perform the following procedure.
Restoring the IPv6 Test Lab
netsh interface ipv6 del address Corpnet 2001:db8::1111
netsh interface ipv6 del address Corpnet2 2001:db8:0:2::2222
netsh interface ipv6 set interface Corpnet managedaddress=disable otherstateful=disable
netsh interface ipv6 set interface Corpnet2 managedaddress=disable otherstateful=disable
