I have a problem using freeipa version 3.0.0-50 on CentOS release 6.8. The 
problem manifests itself as no authentication, and no DNS.

It seems Kerberos just stops responding to requests and requests just get 
queued up
# netstat -tuna | grep SYN_RECV

Looking at /var/log/krb5kdc.log
The normal activity of AS_REQ and TGS_REC messages just stops. No error 
messages. Just  no new messages.

In /var/log/messages the named server reports messages like
Mar  1 00:00:23 freeipa named[18989]: LDAP error: Can't contact LDAP server
Mar  1 00:00:23 freeipa named[18989]: connection to the LDAP server was lost
Mar  1 00:00:23 freeipa named[18989]: bind to LDAP server failed: Can't contact 
LDAP server

The command "kinit" is totally unresponsive and will time out if you wait long 

If I try to restart ipa with "service ipa restart", it hangs on the first 
stage, trying to stop DIRSRV.
I have to do a "ps ax" and look for this line.
2758 ?        Sl     2:13 /usr/sbin/ns-slapd -D /etc/dirsrv/slapd-MY-REALM -i 
/var/run/dirsrv/slapd-MY-REALM.pid -w /var/run/dirsrv/slapd-MY-REALM.startpid

Then I have to a "kill -9" on the pid
Then I can do "service ipa restart"

After that it works ok for a while. "A while" may be a few minutes or several 
The filesystem is only 58% used and "free" shows no swap in use so there seems 
to be plenty of RAM available.
"top" shows CPU(s) 96% idle with "dirsirv" typically using about 3%CPU at most

I've no idea why this keeps happening, everything looks ok then it just stops
