Judging from the stack-trace at your log file it seems that the cause of this problem would be due to changes in your DNS server that cause Crowd to not able to resolve the host name, so as a first approach you could double check with your network administrator and see if there are any changes from the network side that may cause this issue.
Hope this helps.
