I have SAMBA (winbind) authenticating users from the console against active directory.  However I am unable to get SSHD to authenticate user that are located in ADS.  For local users, those in passwd, sshd lets them right in.

The error I am seeing in /etc/var/messages is:
<date> <node> sshd[pid]: pam_ldap: ldap_search_s Operations error
<date> <node> sshd[pid]: pam_krb5[pid]: error getting information about '<username>'

getent passwrd returns the list of users from the domain
getent group returns the list of groups from the domain
wbinfo -u returns the users
wbinfo -g returns the groups
net ads testjoin returns Join is OK

Help...I need to get SSH working.
