check if your firewall is enabled disable it and try again

ISA is a prolific firewall that needs rules to allow other clients the ability to ping the server. If you are using ISA, as X-reagent says, check your firewall.

So to add on to what X-Reagent was saying, If you are using ISA, google search ISA rules for ping.

Here is the information I was looking for:

There is a way to edit IPsec policies by using a GPO. This includes prevent from being pinged. You might want to read this article on setting IPsec policies using GPO's. Especially if you inhereted this Domain. Some administrators prefer you not able to ping the servers. That can help reduce port scanners and hackers from seeing the server.
