i am having an incredibly frustrating time here trying to figure this all out
we have 2 servers
both which have static IP's
both can access each others c$ share
both cannot ping each other
both can ping other servers on our network
both are on the same subnet
Originally i thought it might be because the static IP's that were assigned to them were originally in the DHCP lease range , so i changed their IP's to free one's outside of the DHCP range.
i have since flushed the cache , rebooted etc..
still getting request timed out when pinging each other
i did a nslookup which showed me the DNS server and the Server name with the NEW correct IP address
not sure where to go from here...
