          Why don't you explain exactly what the problem is, in detail.

          From your original post you WANT to acccess without DNS -- so the suggestion was to configure a hosts file. Now it appears to be causing you problems.

            Sorry for not being clear.

            Actually, I don't want to access without DNS.

            My ultimate is to know how can I ping a server calling another machine by its host name in a WORKGROUP environment with no DNS, WINS and no host entries.

              Very simple - you can't
              (unless Server 2012 supports psychic name resolution)

                I still don't understand what your trying to do.

                You want to ping a server, yep got that. Please review http://support.microsoft.com/kb/172218 which will outline the process that Microsoft TC/IP uses in name resolution.

                calling another machine by its hostname

                What does this mean??
