I have a strange situation where i can't communicate or ping between 2 specific servers.  The servers are phbkupexec1 and phbkupexec2.  Both of the servers can communicate with any other server on the network except each other.  I can communicate from my laptop and workstation with both of the servers which is on the same subnet and remote to the servers.  Both servers are on the same subnet.  DNS is resolving correctly.  I tried moving the nic connections to differnet ports on the switch for these servers, changing Ip addrsses all with the same result.  Any idea on this issue?
