ldap fails to start

Running RHEL 5.4 on a HP server. Ran into a issue today where ldap was working fine then was informed it was failing. During the troubleshooting process, I found out that the ldap service failed to start up. See error below:

/sbin/runuser: /usr/sbin/slaptest: Permission denied

I checked the permissions of the ldap.conf and slapd.conf files and they appeared to be correct. Any ideas why ldap will not start up?

Thank you.
