Solved it!!

made the changes you suggested. Didn't work.

Did some more googleing and found PAM was trying to authenticate the Unix user
to AD.
Changed the line in /etc/pam.d/system-auth 
account     [default=bad success=ok user_unknown=ignore] pam_winbind.so
account     sufficient    pam_winbind.so

and it worked.

Thanks!! :-)
