Can't ping server

Hello and thank you for your help.

I'm adding a new server to an existing domain. Server is 2008 r2, domain is 2003.
I have not gotten to the part where i need to raise the domain level and so on.

I just named the server, gave it an IP and joined it to the domain.

I rebooted and logged on w/ domain admin account.

For some reason I am unable to ping the new server from anywhere on the network.
I'm able to ping other devices on the network from the new server but not the other way around.

The new server has a quad port Intel card. I changed the ports but that had no effect.

I'm able to get online, browse the shares on the old server, etc..

What am I doing wrong?
Why can't I see the server from the old server or any of the wks?

PS. I did verify that the all the IP related settings are correct.

Thank you in advance..

Check the firewall settings on the server?  It is likely filtering ICMP packets.
