OSX Lion 10.7.x server filesharing problems

I'm trying to solve this problem for quite some time now.
I've newly installed a OSX 10.7.x system and installed the server utilites. Did a Opendirectory setup and configured fileshareing. I've bound the clients to the OD server and the login is successfully authenticated. Eventhough I get a successful connection and login from the od server logs I get a failure if I try to login to the filesharing part of those services.
All I can find so far is this error:

AppleFileServer[187]: received message with invalid client_id 88
...client_id 89
...
and so on.

What am I missing? I'm pretty sure the answer is in my grasp but I can't find the solution to get the fileshareing working. Maybe some help debugging would be good too.
Any help would be great.

Try stopping and restarting the service on the server using terminal:

serveradmin stop afp && serveradmin start afp

Make sure the user or group the user belongs to has access to File Sharing.
Under Accounts,  click on Users or Groups, on the right, click the user/group and choose the gear icon at the bottom of the window. Choose Edit Access to Services. Check File Sharing in the popup window.

Thank you for your answer, the one with starting and stopping the services, didn't help.
We solved that problem by assigning users to the specific service, and binding the clients to the opendirectory server.
Thank you once again for your help.

Not really an objection but a comment. I didn't mention binding to the OD server because you said in your OP that you had done so already. I didn't want to be redundant.
