[Samba] winbind not working with openlikewise

Hello all,

I'm having a problem with winbind not able to start. I've joined an active directory domain successfully using likewise and for brief time this was working, people were able to mount drives by their active directory account. I know that likewise is working because I'm successfully able to ssh into the box using these accounts. But now windbind has stubbornly refused to start. Yet strangely when I run net ads info I get good information back but winbind claims this " Could not fetch our SID - did we join?"

Any thoughts?

thank you
