Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2008.
  • On the computer, you ping a host in a local-link network.
  • The ping operation fails, and you receive a failure notification. For example, you receive a “Destination Host Unreachable” error message.

In this scenario, you receive a statistics report that shows 0 percent packet loss even though no packets have reached the host successfully.
