[Samba] winbindd dead but subsys locked

winbind failed on on of the servers in my cluster yesterday. I have been
unable to get winbind to start ever since. The init.d script seems to start
winbind and a pid is created. When I run service winbind status I receive
winbindd dead but subsys locked.

So far I have manually deleted the pid. I have rebooted the machine. I have
reinstalled Samba. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a copy of smb.conf:

   server string = %h
   workgroup = DOMAIN
   netbios name = stlnas
   password server = stlDOMAINdc1.DOMAIN.local
   realm = DOMAIN.LOCAL
   security = ads
   idmap backend = tdb2
   idmap uid = 10000-20000
   idmap gid = 10000-20000
   template shell = /bin/bash
#   template homedir = /DOMAIN/home/%U
    template homedir = /home/DOMAIN/%U
   winbind uid = 20001-200000
   winbind gid = 20001-200000
   winbind trusted domains only = no
   winbind use default domain = true
   winbind offline logon = false
   winbind enum users = yes
   winbind enum groups = yes
   obey pam restrictions = yes
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   clustering = yes
   # logs split per machine
   log file = %S.log
   log level = 2
   # max 50KB per log file, then rotate
   max log size = 50

#    passdb backend = tdbsam
