A customer of ours had an issue recently when they wanted to add an IPv6 address as Manage Out server in DA.
Normal process would be to:
- Open the “Remote Access Management Console”
- Select DirectAccess and VPN
- Go to Step 3 and press edit
- Select Management
- Double Click empty space
- Select address and provide IPv6 Address
However we noticed that the IPv6 address option wasn’t there when trying to add a Manage Out server to a DA 2012 Server when it was Load Balanced via NLB.
If you need to add the IPv6 address to a NLB DA solution, you have to do it via PowerShell.
Simply run the following command on a DA server that’s part of the NLB. (Change text in Red to the IPv6 you want to add)
Add-DAMgmtServer -MgmtServer fdc6:a401:6062:3333::5
Then simply apply the configuration J
