Cannot ping local system by machine name IP address

Hello,

I am having a particular problem with a system in my test environment. ( call it Machine A) . I can ping other Machines from Machine A but no one can ping Machine A. Machine A cannot Ping itself using its FQDN or IP address. Machine A gets successful results when pinging 127.0.0.1.
I have tried to flush DNScache and did a IPCONFIG /release and /renew still with no luck in regards to pinging itself successfully. Any help is appreciate with this.
