Hi Experts,

I have a problem with our sbs 2003 server running on virtual machine.

The sbs2003 went to down yesterday so forced to start up this morning but can't receive emails, can't access webmail can't  login to the domain as well.

The server is unable to access to external network as well as internal network which means that I can't ping from my window7 ( to the server ( and of course from the server to my machine can't be pinged.

Tried from another PC ( to the server but still no luck. the server was pingable until yesterday.

I thought something wrong to firewall on the server but as the server has only one nic  it is not related to the problem.

Can someone help me to solve this problem? I want to make ping-able internally for now.
