It appears to be because because it cannot establish trust with the ldap server, this can usually only be caused by a few things:

- The ldaps certificate is missing from the "cacerts" file in java

- Octane does not support the encryption type of the ldap server

Most likely it is that the certificate for the ldap server is missing from the "cacerts" file, it could be that the cacerts file got overwritten with a java upgrade or something else..., I would try re adding the certificate to the cacerts file using java keytool.
