DA IPv6 question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I got a stupid question, and probably know the answer but better to ask : )

    Do I need IPv6 to be implemented in the copr netwrok for implementing DA. If i understed it corectly we dont need it if we have UAG, as we can then use DNS64?

    But are there any changes that have to be done on the DCs? What is the case if the  DCs are 2008 SP2 or R2, or if they are 2003? What hase to be done on them if we are using UAG, and if we are using DNS64 also?

    Tnx!

    Just to clarify, you do not need IPv6 on your intranet if you are using Forefront UAG DirectAccess. However if you are using native Windows 2008 DirectAccess you do.

    Windows Server 2003 DNS servers will support the use of AAAA records which are used with IPv6, but they don't need an IPv6 enabled IP stack for this...

    All INBOUND access to DC's and internal servers will take place using the NAT64 and DNS64 of UAG.

  • No, you do not need to have IPv6 throughout the internal network. DC's on both 2003 and 2008 are supported.

  • Tnx all,

    So in short we dont need IPv6 to be able to user DA when we have UAG also?

  • Correct for DA clients accessing the intranet -however, if you plan manage DA clients from management systems located in your internal network you will need some form of IPv6 setup. The NAT64 and DNS64 components of UAG are for inbound connections only...
