Unable to Initialize Engine License from a Service

Using ArcGIS 10 SP1, in a .NET project using ArcObjects in a winforms application we are able to bind to ProductCode.Engine and initialize the license without a problem. 

Using the same licensing code accessed from a service the 'If RuntimeManager.Bind(ProductCode.Engine)' returns true.  However, the _aoLicenseInitializer.Initialize returns a license status of esriLicenseStatus.esriLicenseNotLicensed.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?  Thank you!
