OES11SP1 DHCPd ISC DHCPv4 4.x Server handing out IPV6 NS

This is a new installation of OES11SP1 for a migration target. We have one Windows7 workstation in this LAN, the rest are XP Pro. I configured DNS and DHCP on the target server and started them. I stopped the services on the source server.

The Windows 7 workstation gets all of the other DHCP Option information, but does not get DNS servers. IPV6 DNS servers are listed instead (in the Network Details pane). It even gets teh IPV4 hard-coded static IP address assigned by MAC address in the DHCP Host configuration.

Has anyone seen this? Is there an option or something to fix this?

FYI, option 5 "Name Servers" and Option 6 "Domain Name Servers" are not the same thing. You want Option 6.

Option 5 will not properly populate the IPv4 DNS entries on your clients.
