Several Windows 7 clients should join the Windows Essentials 2012 Server but the Connector always throws an error:


GetAdapterAddress with Error 0 


ccomputerconnector::ErrorDlgProc:IDD_PROPAGE_ERROR Initialization

Any hints where to look? At first I suspected the network but this appears to be fine. The machines can ping each other.

Google also did not helped with these errors.


The issue was caused by IPv6 connection problems. After disabling IPv6 on the network and the clients it worked fine.
