That is usually because the LDAP server is not answering.  It could also because you have incorrect credentials defined in your LDAP server so it is not answering.

Most ldap servers require you to define a user to "bind" to the LDAP directory.   Have you seen the article here?  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-Based-WLANs/How-do-I-configure-LDAP-on-the-Aruba-controller/ta-p/184056

 

In my opinion, LDAP is the least flexibile but most troublesome authentication method.  I would look into doing Radius for your authentication, if possible.

There has to be a service account used to authenticate users.  That is the "admin DN" account.  You enter that account's password in the password field when you define the LDAP server.  If you define that correctly, adminbound will become "Yes".
