You gave not very much details, so I just can guess:

* Do you have multiple NICs in your system or multiple IPs defined on
your NIC? Did Samba choosed the right IP during the provisioning? If not
temporary shut down the other interfaces and re-provision.

* Bind Samba to the interfaces it should listen on:
  This one should also be choosen by the provisioning process

For a better help, please provide some more information
- Multiple NICs/IPs?
- Provisioning command/output
- smb.conf
- complete log output
- etc.
