Ldapsearch against a Windows AD/DC server

I want to execute an ldapsearch command against a Windows AD/DC system.
If I know the following:

  • bind_dn

  • the password associated with the bind_dn

  • base_dn

  • the IP_address of the Windows AD/DC, so that I do not have to use DNS to resolve it to an IP address

  • and the fact that the server is listening on both ports 389 and 636

Is there anything else that I might need to consider for a successful return of data?

I do not have to worry about Kerberized authentication if the AD/DC server stores the credentials (bind_dn and bind_dn’s password) correct?
