3.12 ,unless configured specifically to run IP ,will only run IPX,so pinging 3.12 is not an option in trouble shooting .

According to this TID,it could be a number of things:

Among them being the distinct possibility that you are having a hardware issues with the disks.

3.12 is quite old and my guess is that you file server hardware is too.
So I would look at running some diags first.
