Did also you check the permissions and ownership of /etc/ssh*,
/var/log/lastlog, and /var/log/sshd.log?

It may be instructive to run this command to see what rights the
sshd_server has:
  editrights -l -u sshd_server

Once you get this fixed, you may have sporadic problems starting sshd
when rebooting.  To fix them, make sure that the Netlogon service has
started before starting the sshd service. Edit the registry and add
Netlogon to the DependOnService value in the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\sshd key.  In
short, you are ensuring that the system can talk to the domain
controller before it tries to start sshd.
