The question here is, what is "the system". The answer is, NSS, most likely NSS calling nss_ldap.

It's not really slapd that was suspended, as is evident from your logs, but nss_ldap.

Did you try and restart any other services while ldap was not running? Did you notice they exhibited the same behaviour?

Anyway, easiest fix for now:

echo "bind_policy soft" >> /etc/ldap.conf
