  Might be a firewall issue. For trial purposes shut off anything and everything that might be acting as a firewall.

It is SBS 2008. You can't turn that firewall off and still access the server. I can ping the server from another workstation. I just can't ping from the server.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

  There must be something else going on. I set up my SBS 2008 server a month ago. The very first thing I did was go in to control panel and turn off the firewall. Actually I stand corrected. I turned the firewall off via GPO but there is an option to do it in control panel. The firewall is off and I have full access from my XP workstations. I can ping out from the server  just fine. Do you have full admin rights on the server?

This was working fine Friday. The only thing I did since Friday was move the server into a rack.  

I had turned the Windows Firewall off on an SBS 2008 server once and it appeared to block all access to the server. I thought this was MS way of saying don't turn off the Firewall?

  Leave it to Microsoft :) one of the very first things I do on all my servers is turn off the firewall. I am well firewalled at the gateway and have found that firewalls on servers keeps me from doing a lot of things I reall need to do! In conjunction with that you don't have a virus/malware program that has a firewall with it running on the server do you?

I still can't turn the Firewall off on SBS 2008 without losing connection. I'm not sure what is causing that.
Trend Micro was installed at one point but it caused problems so I had to uninstall it. It appears the problem i'm now having is caused by the corrupt install of Trend Micro. Since everything else is working, I'll live with this until I have a fill weekend to work on it.
