DHCP not connecting to LDAP

Came in this morning to find the DHCP server stopped and complaining of LDAP connection.

13.11.23 09:49:37.407 POLICY ( ERROR ) : Failed to get namingContexts: Can’t contact LDAP server

Restart of the service gives me this

Starting the service univention-dhcp failed:

I tried resetting the machine password with

ucr set server/password/interval=-1
ucr set server/password/interval=21

still unable to restart the DHCP…
