I have w UCS servers who are clustered with an EMC SAN NS-120. Using SQL 2K8. Firewall not on. Our DBA is unable to connect from either node in the cluster to one server and gets the error attached. When pinging from either UCS node to the server in question it returns 127.0.0.1. Pathping and Tracert to the server it can't ping returns a different server all together. I have tried flushing the dns and registering with same results. It's not a DC and the entries in DNS on the DC are correct. This is the only server that it has issues with. Pinging the IP of the server is fine, just by name it replies 127.0.0.1
