We have a problem pinging a server on our network.
For some reason when we try to ping from a particular server to another server on the same subnet, the first ping comes back ok, but then the other reply’s fail.
Try the ping again and it works ok. Its seems to only happen (fail) if the target server we’re trying to ping has been quite for a period of 10 minutes or so.
We’ve tried pinging the target server from other servers/machines and it works ok all the time, even after 10 minutes.
Has anyone seen this before or know what it is ??
Both servers are 2008 R2.
Thanks in advance,
