Ping request could not find host HOST. Please check the name and try again .

ping cannot find host but nslookup on a host works just fine:  

Ping request could not find host HOST. Please check the name and try again.

Restart the DNS Client Service in Windows Services to resolve this one.  A few other commands to try:  

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig / registerdns

Following this, check eventviewer why it stopped working to begin with.  The service is started using:

C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k NetworkService

Alternately, stopping the caching daemon also works.

Cheers,
