[Samba] addtnl info: checking trust secret failed for interdomain trust

I tested some more and have some additional info.
Creating the trust accounts works. Doing a wins query on redmoon for bluemoon and psw works (nmblookup -U -R bluemoon/ -R psw/ -R -M psw/etc), and also the other way around on bluemoon querying redmoon and pswindwg. So it's not wins I guess. Doing wbinfo -a PSW\<username>%<passwd> on redmoon also works, so users are authenticated correctly. Also smbclient -L -U <username> -WPSW works on redmoon. 
THe problem only arises when I do wbinfo -t or I try to add groups or users from the PSW domain to groups of the PSWINDWG domain (net rpc group addmem indwg 'PSW\kantoor' -Uroot%<password>).

wbinfo -t returns :
checking the trust seret via RPC calls failed
Error code was NT_STATUS_INTERNAL_ERROR (0xc00000e5)
Could not check secret

and net rpc group addmem indwg 'PSW\jack' -Uroot%<passwd> returns
COuld not add PSW\jack to indwg: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

At the moment I do not see any relevant messages in the logs on redmoon or bluemoon.
Any ideas?
