    Windows 7 Pro PCs are not pinging... Is that a problem? Or is there another problem that you need to solve? Ping failures are often unimportant. They are also often expected. But if there are other problems, such as failure to join the domain, then those may be much more important than inability to ping. Please clarify the actual problem that you need to solve. Tom

    "disjoined from domain,".... how could u disjoin when the 7 pcs r not pinging the server, as far as I know, it is not possible to join domain if they can’t ping server 2003 ! / any how u got success to ping previously. What Kind of IP i.e. dhcp / static u did not mentioned here. Please read here for new smb 2.0 protocol uses by wind 7.

    Physical checking is necessary as my opinion like nic, lan cable etc etc.... as u mentioned only one has this kind of probs ! Is it possible to test with a cross cable that happens only two pcs connecting a wire with this cable's both ends and then ping each of them with their IP. I am not sure but u can do a try.

    Cables and switch ports are checked. I am trying to degrade Windows 7 to XP today. there are 4 PCs having issues (differnt hardware ,Lenova,Dell HP). All the PCs are communicating to other network drives. Server is already accessing by around 30 clients. Please advice.

    I have degraded one of the PCs to XP and it is communicating to DC. So it is the problem with windows 7 OS .Other 3 PCs are still having the problem. Can any body suggest?

    ...windows 7 clients which are not communicating to a 2003 DC. There appear to be various difficulties getting Win 7 clients properly connected to a Win 2003 domain. Review Windows 7 clients on 2003 domain / group policy and Windows Small Business Server 2003: Windows 7, Windows Vista and Outlook 2007 compatibility update for example areas to investigate. Tom
