Host machine fails to ping File Server and Database
My host machine (SysTest55) is not pinging the File Server and Database from Test Center. But, I am able to perform tests on this machine without any problem. I ran sample tests with one controller and one host (SysTest55). The scripts ran perfectly fine and got the results as well.
But when I select this host for Check Host it fails to ping. Please access the following URL for the attachment.

ICMP may be disabled on your ping destination to prevent "ping of death" or other denial of service attacks based upon ICMP. Common in highly secure environments. ICMP disabling would also impact traceroute.
Your tests run across either TCP or UDP (depending upon the type of higher layer protocol and your application) and are thus not impacted by any type of disabling of ICMP.
