[Samba] samba 3 and active directory computers

Installed Samba 3 with Winbind on Ubuntu server 10.04 x64.

User accounts authenticate beautifully using the domain.  wbinfo -u and
wbinfo -g show me all of my domain user accounts and groups respectively.

I want to use Active Directory to deploy software to the computers, however,
I cannot get the computers in active directory to be able to authenticate to
the Samba server.

Here is what I have in my error logs.

[2010/12/15 16:48:06,  3] libsmb/ntlmssp.c:745(ntlmssp_server_auth)
  Got user=[] domain=[] workstation=[IT-OFFICE2] len1=1 len2=0

And below is my smb.conf

prefered master = no
server string = file server
security = ADS
netbios name = storage
password server = swerver2008.office.domain.com
encrypt passwords = yes
workgroup = OFFICE2008

  force create mode = 0770

  force group = @OFFICE.DOMAIN.COM+officeStaff

  comment = Directory for applications to be deployed using group policy

  force create mode = 0755
  force directory mode = 0755
  force group = @OFFICE.DOMAIN.COM+officeComputers
  guest ok = yes
  guest account = nobody

Where am I going wrong?
