Cannot PING newly created website

I am on a Windows 2003 Server SP2 running IIS 6. I have created a new website with the appropriate IP etc. However, when I try to ping the IP address of the website I get a request timed out error. I get the error even when I am pinging from the IIS server itself. There are 4 other websites on this server that I can PING and are working properly. I have created 1 other website on this server before and everything worked properly.

Thanks for your help.

Sounds like your alternative IP address didn't take. You might delete the alternative IP address for that web site and then recreate it.

When you run ipconfig at the cmd line, do all the netmasks and default gateways of all the IPs look identical?

Do you have windows firewall or ISA firewall blocking ICMP traffic?

When I ran an ipconfig /all, the IP address of the new website wasn't there?  But all the other IP addresses are listed.

Our firewall does block PINGs from the outside. But I can ping any device inside our network. I can't ping the new website from inside our network.

By the way, how many nics do you have?

I was going to take your suggestion and delete the alternate IP for the web site. However, while looking at the IP addresses configured for the NIC, I found I hadn't added the websites IP. Once I configured the IP to the NIC everything worked.

Thanks for your help.
