Cant Ping or Remotely Connect to my Replica DC Server

By brian ·
Hi All,

I recently deployed a replica DC Server on my network. the server has windows server 2003(64bt) R2 installed. The problem is that if i ping the server from any host/server on the network, I'm getting timeouts. ironically, if i ping or remotely connect to any computer on the network using the Replica Server, I'm getting replies.

Please help. i need to remotely connect to the server.

can you ping from that box to other hosts on your network?

1. check your network connection settings on the server that you are trying to connect to.

2. check the "TCP/IP" Filtering settings for your network interface card. make sure it is not turned on.

3. check your firewall settings on the server itself.

4. is the replica DC hooked up to a switch or is it behind a router? if so, you need to check your firewall settings on the router to see if it is blocking ICMP echo request.

5. Were you ever able to ping the server?

6. is everything on one network or subnetted?
