Sun and smoke simulation

I’ve tried using a smoke simulator with a sun for lighting but all the objects in the domain appear black but when I use a point lamp it appears normally.

Is there a problem with sun and smoke simulation??

Render engine ?

You can note that once rendered the cube is black. Try using a point lamp and all is normal.
