Disabling/Enabling IPv6 with an Application in Configuration Manager 2012

The idea behind OSD in Configuration Manager is automation.  Right?  We want to create a process to eliminate as many manual tasks as possible.  Some companies have their technicians manually disable IPv6 on all adapters.  Who wants to do all of that manual work when we can have it automated?  My clients occasionally ask for a step in the OSD Task Sequence to disable IPv6.  If you would like to disable IPv6 on all interfaces, you should do it in a way that is easily reversible on your client computers companywide.  Here is how I did this for a recent client:

Enabling NTLM Authentication Single Sign-On (SSO) in Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer supports NTLM authentication out of the box. It should just work for intranet hosts, but you can add other hosts to the security settings:

Internet Explorer: Tools → Internet Options → Security → Local Intranet → Sites
 

Adding trusted hosts can also be done through group policy.

You must also make sure either your Local security policy or Domain Group policy reflects the following:

Go to Local Security policy > Security settings > local policies > security options

Enabling NTLM Authentication Single Sign-On (SSO) in Firefox

How many of you have noticed that when you are using Internet Explorer and you browse to your companies intranet page that it will automatically authenticate you but when you use Firefox you will be prompted with a login box?

I recently, in searching for solutions to allow NTLM authentication with Apache, stumbled across how to set a preference in Firefox that will pass the NTLM authentication information to a web server. The preference is network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris.

So how do you do it?
