What operating system is that?

Here is what we have in ipa_cldap.c:
    ctx->sd = socket(PF_INET6, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
     if (ctx->sd == -1) {
         LOG_FATAL("Failed to create socket\n");
         ret = EIO;
         goto done;

So we failed to create a socket using PF_INET6 family. It looks like you
don't have IPv6 enabled in your kernel?
