    IPV6 help me please

    My Primary schools internal network runs on IP4, I do have IPV6 enabled on the server, but to be honest I do not really get it and have never needed to look into it before now.

    Anyway I have noticed the following event ID error in the server logs,

    Log Name: SystemSource: Microsoft-Windows-DHCP-Server
    Date: 18/03/2014 13:12:24
    Event ID: 10020
    Task Category: None
    Level: Warning
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A
    Computer: srv01.domain.lan
    This computer has at least one dynamically assigned IPv6 address.For reliable DHCPv6 server operation, you should use only static IPv6 addresses.
    Event Xml:
    <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
    <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-DHCP-Server" Guid="{6D64F02C-A125-4DAC-9A01-F0555B41CA84}" EventSourceName="DhcpServer" />
    <EventID Qualifiers="0">10020</EventID>
    <TimeCreated SystemTime="2014-03-18T13:12:24.000000000Z" />
    <Correlation />
    <Execution ProcessID="0" ThreadID="0" />
    <Security />
    Looking at the adapter settings on the server for IPV6 I have,

    Obtain an IPV6 address automatically
    DNS = ::1
    I assume I should not have Obtain an IPV6 address automatically as the selected option, but have no idea what I would put in the following sections.
    ipv6 address
    subnet prefix length
    default gateway

    just ignore it. Unless you have a static ipv6 address to give the server the auto assigned fe80 address will do fine adn "making one up" is more likely to cause you problems (the only exception to that is if you have your server set to dish out ipv6 leases which id lay odds on you not having
