That's likely an RPC issue and not an ICMP issue.  Could be name resolution,
permissions, network, etc.  

Some things to look at:
Is the W2k server a member of the domain?
Are you using the proper credentials?
Do you have RPC connectivity (can you open the event viewer of the Exchange
host from the W2K host)?
Is the Exchange server services running without errors?

Hi all, I am a new member and not expert at MS Exchange faults. If anyone
can help me with the problem I had and still looking. I installed Exchange
5.5 Administrator on another Server with Win2k. When you try to connect to
the exchange server you cannot connect to it, the fault is
"DS_E_communciation failure", although you can ping to the mail server, all
in the same domain. Please help and Many Thks.
