How to remote control a VPro system on a IPv6 network

Hi All,

This one stumped me for weeks.

Did you know that the out of band management role within SCCM does not support IPv6? Also if you try to remote control a Vpro system when IPv6 is the first communication path it will fail?

I didn't. I setup Microsoft Direct Access, which as you may know requires IPv6. Check out the section Slow Responses to AMT-Based Computers Using IPv6 from this page. It clearly states Out of band management does not support IPv6. 

The solution was very easy, on you SCCM server or the system you are using to remote control the system, run the following commands so the system requesting to remote control the 
will try to communicate on IPv4 and if that fails it will communicate on IPv6. 

netsh interface ipv6 delete prefix ::ffff:0:0/96
netsh interface ipv6 add prefix prefix=::ffff:0:0/96 precedence=45 label=4

This one stumped me for weeks.
