server 2012 standard can ping router but nothing else on the network

We have a brand new server installed into a mainly mac environment.  No PDC or AD has been running.  I have the server running on a static address and DNS configured as all the other machine using google server.  I cannot ping this server from anywhere.  The server can browse the internet and ping the router but the server cannot ping anything else.
I have tried turning the firewall off, changing the settings to allow pings and everything I can think off.  Any help would be amazing!

Firstly can the other devices ping the server? Are you pinging by IP address or hostname of the devices? Can the other devices ping each other/router?

If pinging by hostname and you are only using Google dns then this will not work as the google dns servers will not be aware of your device's hostnames. Ideally for internal hostnames you should use dns on the server itself or at the very least use the router (which should have some basic dns capabilities on it).

If by IP address then I would look at the IP ranges. What IP address are you using on the server/router/devices - what subnet are you using?

Hi,

Other devices can ping each other, router, and everything but the new server.  I am trying to purely ping ip addresses at the moment.

All devices are on the same subnet.  I have even tried the server using DHCP.  Which it picks up fine but no change.

Thanks

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Are you sure, you made the settings for the firewall right? (allowing ICMP-Packets and so on..)

Lawrie GormleyAuthor Commented:
I have actually turned the firewall off completely and still get the same issues.  I have set up 2012 servers previously and never ran into this issue.

Thanks

Problem solved.

The network switch seemed to be causing the issue.  When swapping into a different switch everything runs as should

Thanks everyone!!
