How to change default TCP/IP from IPv6 to IPv4?

Many of us were disabling IPv6 protocol on a system, where it was not used. You can find many blog articles, where people are recommending disabling IPv6 (unfortunately the procedure in most of these articles is not correct).

Times are changing, and more organizations are preparing for IPv6 implementation. At iRangers we see this more often, especially on large-scale projects for government offices, banks, and other enterprise level companies.

Personally, I still prefer to have IPv4 protocol to be a default protocol on a task critical servers (by default, since Windows Vista IPv6 is a default protocol).

Back in the days, I've published here the "Improve your Hyper-V Virtual Availability - Live Migrate VMs on Shutdown" article.
By default, if you shut down a cluster host, say, because you're deploying a Windows Update, or a new version of a backup or monitoring client, the situation is different. Windows will use Quick Migration to move the virtual machines from one host to another. "Improve your Hyper-V Virtual Availability - Live Migrate VMs on Shutdown" article describes how to use PowerShell and Group Policy and  take all the virtual machines on thr host and distribute them across the cluster.
