I have a very interesting problem on my hands. I work at a main office, we have several branches throughout our valley. When these branches lose power and their network equipment goes down it's a big pain. What's an even bigger headache, is to find out that when their power is restored they have network connectivity to every host on the network except 1: The print server. This doesn't happen to every client at the remote branch mind you....just a few random ones. The print server is s Windows 2003 server, a DC, and as i mentioned before, a print server hosting about 40 different printers. Does anyone have any input as to why a client PC on one of our remote networks would not be able to ping this particular server after the power goes out and comes back on again at there branch?
any help would be greatly be greatly appreciated
