After a server reboot my server came back up fine.  I am now unable to ping the server from the network and I can not ping the networ from the server. Everything appears to be fine with the network card.

Did you check the details of ipconfig for any type of misconfiguration?

Please paste in the results of the ping tests mentioned in http:#a35441550 (server self test portion).  You can sanitize if needed....

I get all replys when pinging itself.

But you cannot ping your gateway from the errant server?

Commented:

No can not ping anywhere but itself. Also when I reboot it works for about 2 min then the network issues start.

Assuming it is static IP, can you change the IP address temporary?

If that did not help - What is the server role?

Commented:



Server is a domain controller. I also tried to Change IP and switch adapter. Also I disabled virus software.

Did you try using a different ethernet cable?  That it is a DC changes things, though.  You say it "works for two minutes" and then stops.  Do you see anything in the event viewer on the server?

I will give that a try. I am on my way to the office. I will get Back to you.

This sounds a little more like a system state firewall is blocking ICMP echo.

Chief,

That is an excellent observation and one I should have thought of sooner.  I think tunnel vision is the appropriate term here.... ;-)

Thank you all for your help.  The actual problem had to do with the ipsec policy on the server.  I had to delete the local ipsec policy in the registry and reboot the server and it worked.  Thanks for your help.
