Directory service will not restart:

# service ipa restart

Restarting Directory Service

Shutting down dirsrv:

     domain-LOCAL... server already stopped                   [FAILED]

   *** Error: 1 instance(s) unsuccessfully stopped          [FAILED]

Starting dirsrv:

     domain-LOCAL...                                          [FAILED]

   *** Error: 1 instance(s) failed to start

Failed to restart Directory Service: Command '/sbin/service dirsrv
restart ' returned non-zero exit status 1

Web service is running enough to load the “Identity Management” banner
then pops up an “unknown error” dialog box.

You want to look at /var/log/dirsrv/slapd-domain-LOCAL/errors for details on why it failed to start.
