Does the flood stop while the system is IPLing or does it continue

Hi Folks, overnight we upgraded from V5R4 to V6R1M1 (LIC at V6R1M1) and after
n upgrade of about 6 hours (including the object conversion) our network
tarted to be flooded by IPV6 traffic from the newly upgraded lpar and it's
ausing slowdowns all over the network and affecting users and production. Has
nyone else had similar circumstances or issues like this? I did not know or
ealize that IPV6 would start so we changed the cmd default so STRTCP would not
tart IPV6 and we also CHGIPLA to Start TCP/IP *NO and we've ipl'd several time
nd our network folks continue to say the newly upgraded system is flooding the
etwork with traffic.
If anyone has any help or info to share on this type of situation, plz let me
Management wants to go back to the prior release!
