I received a TTL expired in transit message and the problem was an erroneous entry in DHCP.

Someone had added the same host name in the DHCP server with a static IP address(10.x.x.11), while the host had also leased a new dynamic IP address (10.x.x.22).

Pinging host.example.com [10.x.x.22] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 10.x.x.11: TTL expired in transit.
Reply from 10.x.x.11: TTL expired in transit.

Ping statistics for 10.x.x.22:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
