  • IPv6 causing install to hang.

    I am doing a fresh install of SBS 2008 Premium. Everything during the install starts to go great. Once I hit the "Connecting your Server" it gets about 3/4 of the way through then it just sits there. I let it go over night but still when I woke up it was sitting there. I restarted the box and checked the log file and for 12 hours it is checking for IPv6 addresses. Has anyone else had this happen or have any ideas how to get this resolved so that I can get the box up and running. I had this machine running since Beta 2 so I don't think that it is the hardware.

    Thanks in advance,
    Joe Mallit

    Wish I had an answer but I'm actually having the same problem, going to try a different NIC and see if that works and I'll post if it does.

      Are you able to logon in to Safe Mode? If so, you could uninstall TCP-IP v6 on the NIC and then restart the computer.

        Problem solved by disabling onboard VIA nic and using an Intel Pro 1000/MT Desktop Adapter (ya I know but it's my home server =P)

          You can always rely on an Intel NIC though others may differ.

            For information only, IPv6 can't be uninstalled on a SBS 2008 but only disabled. However, certain problems may arise if IPv6 is disabled as per this article:

              Thanks Andy. I meant disabled through removing te tick but didn't word it correctly.

              Interesting link, so I know to be careful with the use of ths setting.
