bgraves is on a distinguished road

I am trying to simulate turbulent planar couette flow, with initial velocity of:
top wall
value uniform(5 0 0)

bottom wall
value uniform(-5 0 0)

internal field (0 0 0)

The simulation ran fine, however, when I look at the results in paraView both velocities are to the right with a velocity of positive five. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and if so how to resolve it.
