My good friend Mark Morowczynski, Microsoft PFE for Active Directory, wrote a three-part series on the Ask Premier Field Engineering (PFE) Platforms blog about IPv6 that is well worth reading.
- IPv6 for the Windows Administrator: Why you need to care about IPv6 - Explains why IPv6 is important and covers the #1 thing that most admins do wrong with IPv6: Disabling it improperly.
- IPv6 for the Windows Administrator: IPv6 Fundamentals - Covers IPv6 addressing and explains what all those strange numbers and letters mean.
- IPv6 for the Windows Administrator: More IPv6: Subnetting, Zones, Address Autoconfiguration, Router Advertisements and IPv4 comparisons - Goes into detail about setting up an IPv6 address scheme, Zone IDs, how clients can potentially get IPv6 address, and a nice comparison between IPv4 and IPv6.
