I have multiple VM Hosts (ESXi 4.1 and 5.0) configured and am having issues with authenticating admins through AD.  I join to the the domain successfully and have the ESX^Admins group added.  Some boxes work and some don't.  The strange part is, some boxes that used to work are no longer working.

Are there any logs and I can peruse to try to find the problem?  I've looked through the obvious ones and can't find anything out of the ordinary.
