samba 2.2.4 on RedHat 7.1

everything is working. wbinfo -t reports a good secret. users can access
shares. the samba server shows up in the browser & server manager.

However, this server is not able to change the password on it's machine
account. I log the following errors once a day:

May 29 08:16:33 rhtemp1 smbd[5056]:   domain_client_validate: unable to
fetch domain sid. 
May 29 08:16:33 rhtemp1 smbd[5056]: [2002/05/29 08:16:33, 0]
May 29 08:16:33 rhtemp1 smbd[5056]:   2002/05/29 08:16:33 :
change_trust_account_password: Failed to change password for domain

anyone know how to fix this?
