I was investigating a DNS issue on my local network and stumbled across the root hints. Turns out 2K8 R2 (probably all versions) don’t include the IPv6 addresses of the root DNS servers and they are missing the K, L and M root servers from the list. I pulled the latest and greatest root hints file from Internic and basically had to remove the v4 addresses form the list, apply the changes, then resolve out both addresses again to get the v6 address as primary.

Being consistent with my preferences in life, this is not a simple task. At least, figuring it out was not a plug-and-play activity we are all used to in the VMWare world of virtualization. I want: A KVM Windows Server 2008 R2 guest installed on an LVM logical volume utilizing the VirtIO drivers for storage. The LVM portion was pretty straight forward. Create an LVM out of the free space in my PV.
