My Problem I have to start my ldap server before krb5 and so on.

I'm not aware of anything, and I have similar problems - need to have DNS running before other stuff starts, DB backends running before dependent services start, etc.

From previous threads, the suggestion have been
along the lines of what you'd need to do if they were physical servers. The suggestion I recall was that you insert scripts in your startup that will wait until required external services have started before exiting and allowing the boot process to continue.

In my case, I'm considering building a hosts file with all the key entries I need, and distributing that to most of my machines. That would deal with most of my problems. Just to remind me of this to-do, we had a power cut last week and so had to do a "cold start" with all the fun that entails :(
