Not able to login to crowd console

we have crowd version 2.9.1 on a Linux RHEL. When we try to login to the console it fails with the message:

Connection to authentication server failed. Please review the logs for more information.

login and password to console has not changed for crowd console access.

Checked the atlassian-crowd.log and see the following:
