Investigate exactly what they did.

edit: In the mean time, have you tried turning it off, then on again

Honestly, what do you expect us to be able to tell you??? We'd have to know EVERYTHING about your environment to even begin...this is a large-scale, systemic problem. If *NONE* of your postfix servers are working anymore, then something has changed on your LDAP server, or there has been a change in your network/firewalls between the postfix systems and the LDAP servers.

Have you done ANY basic troubleshooting??? Run an ldap query from the command line on the postfix servers, to see what you get? Looked at the logs? Asked any of your co-workers what they've done??? We can't guess as to EVERYTHING...tell us what you've done/tried/looked at, and we can go from there.

Earlier it was showing not FQDN : Sleeping retry error
so i update the /etc/hosts file as required.
Some usera are access to mails but it takes more than 20-4o minutes to reach, & showing connection dropped error
postfix server logs:

Sep 3 15:26:57 mailsrv3 postfix/trivial-rewrite[13493]: warning: dict_ldap_lookup: Search error -5: Timed out
Sep 3 15:26:57 mailsrv3 postfix/trivial-rewrite[13493]: fatal: ldap:/etc/postfix/groups.cf(0,lock|fold_fix): table lookup problem

There has not been any changes in firewall or network. Just the bandwidth link is increased from 1MB to 2 MB.

Don't bump your own threads, unless you're providing more information.

And based on what you've posted...this makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE at all. You say that Postfix and LDAP were all working *TOTALLY FINE*...until you took a BACKUP? Copying file(s) doesn't change LDAP services, or postfix configurations. Then you add:

...this, which indicates that there WERE changes in the network configurations...how, exactly, did you increase this link? What version/distro of Linux are you using?? You also indicate that you edited /etc/hosts, talk about your FQDN, etc....all these things indicate that you've changed quite a bit.

Again, roll back whatever changes were made, and see if that makes a difference. Just an increase in bandwidth won't affect postfix/ldap configurations.
