Hi

Have you checked if iptables ( firewall ) is enabled ?

iptables -L  -- >list rules,   must probably you have a rule on the firewall that is not allowing icmp
iptables -F -- > will flush all rules of firewall

chkconfig iptables off -- > disable iptables permanently

if this is not you problem, check if your network interfaces has link

ethtool eth0

I hope this fix ur problem

They are in different subset. Try move one of them to the same subnet and ping again.

How are these machines setup? Are these the only machines that you are having problem?
