Cannot ping new server

So I just set up a new win2k8 R2 SP1 server and can RDP into it, UNC into it (\\server\c$), without any problems...but I cannot ping it via DNS or IP.

I can ping from the new server to other servers as well.... windows firewall is turned on but that shouldnt cause any issues....any ideas?

To view the firewall status of your server, type:

netsh advfirewall show allprofiles

Here is the command to allow ICMP v4

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947709

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”All ICMP V4” protocol=icmpv4:any,any dir=in action=allow

If you UNC to it, it means that it's probably resolving via broadcast.  Make sure that the DNS Client service is enabled, and you have the Domain Controller hosting DNS as the primary DNS server.

Try running ipconfig /registerDNS and check the event log to see if you get any errors related to DNS registration.

Actually Windows Firewall blocks ping. You need to allow ICMP

Try this,

Open Network and Sharing Center from your PC's network connections, in here you must set "Public Folder Sharing" to Open, and ping again.


good luck
