I've been working on a new Win2k3 Domain Controller and soon an Exchange 2k3 server. I am currently running on a win2k environment with exchange 2k.
For the new Win2k3 enviro, I'll be starting from scratch with new hardware. I have the new domain controller running in the same physical network with a unique static ip address using the same gateway IP that everyone uses including my current domain controller but using it's own IP for DNS. Why is it that i can ping just about every device on the network on this new server but can't ping this new server from other computers that are established in the network? Is there something thats prohibitting it from being pinged? What i really want to do is to try to connect a few workstations on this new domain controller. Is there something preventing other computers from pinging this new DC? This new DC will eventually replace my current win2k DC.
