Description: This message occurs when the server could not establish a TCP connection to a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server.

Action: From a LDAP client workstation, make sure that the LDAP server is responding to requests. Also make sure that the portmapper on the LDAP server is responding to requests. Make sure that there are no networking issues stopping the cluster from communicating with this LDAP server.
