Symptoms

Assume that you use the Isnscli.exe command to retrieve information from an Internet Storage Name Service (iSNS) Server that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2. In this situation, the Isnscli.exe command incorrectly displays IPv4 addresses instead of IPv6 addresses.

For example, you run following command: 

C:\>isnscli ListAllNodesWithDetails

The IPv6 address is incorrectly displayed as "0.0.0.93" when the Isnscli.exe command displays the following information about nodes:
