Ping, tracert fail: General failure RRS feed

  • Întrebare

  • I setup some Windows 7 64-bit clients.
    We are not using IPv6.

    I tried to ping, tracert these devices by their name.
    I get a General failure when I ping or tracert, instead of replies or hop info.

    I think the dns name is wrong.
    When I ran nslookup I see the following:

    C:\>nslookup win7-testbox
    Server:  dc.domain.org

    Name:    win7-testbox.domain.org
    Addresses:  2002:a1df:c3f4::a1df:c5f7

    I am able to ping these devices from XP or 2003 devices w/o any problems.

    When I ping from a Win 7 to a Win 7 client by name.
    The name is resolving to the the first address listed in the Addresses field of nslookup.

    I can ping the second address in Win 7 to Win 7 when using the IP address.
    Because we use DHCP on our clients that address is not always intuitive.

    How to resolve this?
    Please help.

  • If you want to force a ping using ip v4 just type "ping win7-testbox -4"
