Only one network card should be configured with default gateway. Remove default gateway setting from one of the network cards. Try to ping again. If it does not work, poste outpu of "route print" command.

Adiitional unrelated question: which roles does this server hold?

This server gets data from network 1 and back up it on network 2. Also is routing service on server need to be enable or dis-able

You can do this two ways:

1)  Use RRAS.
2)  Configure the NIC that is at the top of the binding order with it's default gateway, leave the other NIC's gateway empty and add a static route for that NIC's network.

A computer cannot have 2 default gateways.
