Probably there are better ways to solve this issue but the way that works for 
me is to validate the trust from the AD side after a reboot of the IPA Server - 
it always shows as offline for me too. On 2012 Server you can do this through 
Active Directory Domains and Trusts - properties on your domain and go to trust 
tab - properties again. Next you press validate on the General tab. AD will ask 
for authentication but that can be skipped.
AD Trust will be back online right away and you can check it through wbinfo 

Probably the procedure are similar on Server 2008.

Subject: [Freeipa-users] Help: Rebooted IPA server and AD Trust shows offline

Was trying to add an external ad group to IPA, it kept failing with unable to 
connect to server.

Figured I'd reboot to clear things up.  Oops.

Now wbinfo --online-status shows are AD as offline.
wbinfo -u shows blank

wbinfo -n 'DOMAIN\user' gives the following message:

failed to call wbcLookupName: WBC_ERR_DOMAIN_NOT_FOUND
could not lookup 'Domain\user'

I saw a similar post in the freeipa-users archive about adding
        client min protocol = CORE
        client max protocol = SMB2_02
to the samba config; restarted winbind and still getting errors
