SSSD uses LDAP + SASL/GSSAPI for identity lookups. Authentication is
Kerberos with the exception of client side password migration that does
a one-time TLS bind.
Both SASL/GSSAPI and the TLS bind use port 389. We don't use ldaps://
(which would be port 636 by default) in the IPA provider at all.
As per why your testing looked like port 389 does not need to be open, my
guess is that SSSD simply returned entries from cache. Does an identity
lookup (getent passwd admin) work when you remove or expire the caches
and restart SSSD?
