LDAP depends on the network
The network depends on dbus
dbus depends on LDAP
Having LDAP authentication enabled and the LDAP bind_policy set to "hard" does not allow a connection retry in a timely manner.
- bind_policy <hard_open|hard_init|soft>
- Specifies the policy to use for reconnecting to an unavailable LDAP server. The default is hard_open, which reconnects if opening the connection to the directory server failed. By contrast, hard_init reconnects if initializing the connection failed. Initializing may not actually contact the directory server, and it is possible that a malformed configuration file will trigger reconnection. If soft is specified, then nss_ldap will return immediately on server failure. All "hard" reconnect policies block with exponential backoff before retrying.
