Setting IPv6 to Dynamic Addressing on Windows Server 2016 Core RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys

    I am sure the solution is obvious but is escaping me.

    I want to set the IPv6 network configuration to 'Obtain DNS server address automatically' on a core Windows 2016 server.

    I see that SCONFIG only configures IPv4.

    Your advice is appreciated.

    Thanks

  • Hello, 
    (I didn't tested it)
    Maybe the cmd line : netsh interface ipv6 set dnsservers name="Local Area Connection" source=DHCP
    Or you could use an server manager to do it like Windows admin center.

    I hope it can help.

    Thanks for posting in the forum.

    Would you please make sure that your device is configured with an IPv6 address?
