I had a similar problem today with a SBS 2003 server. Do you have Automatic Updates enabled? Did the Server download updates last night? Was it working normally before then?

By default, certain trial versions have ICMP (ping) disabled in the firewall of Server 2008. You can change this by visiting here.

This is ok, you can still use it to configure ICMP. do it through the command line or this way

1. Open Windows Firewall in Control Panel  (start/run/firewall.cpl)
2. Click the Advanced tab
3. Under ICMP, click Settings
4. Select the Allow Incoming Echo Request checkbox

COMMAND LINE below...

go to CMD and type
netsh firewall set icmpsetting all enable

hi Scotty,

I can't find ICMP under advanced tab ... this is windows 2008 server (full installation, not server core)

thanks again,

Ok, do this...

Start __> Administrative Tools --> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc972926(WS.10).aspx

follow instructions here.

Also, it will be a File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - ICMPv6 IN)

Put this under inbound rules.

This will work for sure.
