I work for a small school and our network is has about 225 cpu's (all running xppro). I am running windows 2003 server for our main server (named Vision), and I am running window 03/64 for our backup and fileshare server (named Eagle). Our network is set up with a v-lan, and we have cisco products for routers and switches. We had a power outage over the weekend and now I am having some issues with the backup server (so it appears).
With Eagle, If I try and ping an outside address such as yahoo, google, etc., it will not do it, but I can visit those sites through explorer. I can also ping several workstations, with the exception of about six computers. Those computers are in a lab, that are connected with 2 cisco switches, that are functioning normally. I have about 14 computers in this lab, and 8 of them connect to Eagle fine. They can file share, get program access and ping eagle. The other four cannot ping eagle, and cannot file share. They can ping vision, and also outside websites, as well as other computers on the network. Just not eagle.
Anyone out there seen the issue in the past? I would really love some suggestions! I am sure I left out some details that you pro's probably need, so just let me know what additional info you need! Thanks in advance!
