Hi All,

I have a server 2008 r2 standard.  I started messing with the services and now I can't ping out from the server.  I am able to ping the server from a workstation.

Please let me know what I need to do to be able to ping out from the server.  I can't even ping 127.0.0.1.  When I enter "ping 127.0.0.1" nothing happens.  It just hangs there.

Thank you in advance.

check System File check in verify mode,

sfc /verifyonly  (Elevated command prompt) - > If you found any errors run below command to fix the File Check.

Run sfc /scannow in elevated command prompt and check the you are getting any errors in log file,

you can find the log file in %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log



Also I would recommend you to disable yo Windows Firewall / Antivirus and check, whether you are able to ping from Server.

can you ping the actual server IP? or computer name?  how about an internet address?
try tracert to a website.  does that work?  if not where does it stop?

I mirrored the settings (services) on another server. After a reboot, everything worked.
Thanks
