Anonymous connection to LDAP wouldn't work. I think we use it
for rootdse access when enrolling IPA clients where we don't
yet have a CA certificate.

I may be wrong, though.

Also old (RHEL-5) SSSD versions rely on anonymous access to be
able to retrieve rootDSE. Newer (RHEL-6.3+) clients are able to
re-try fetching rootDSE once the authenticated connection is

Also, older FreeIPA clients were not able to join those severs due
to bug in ipa-client-install:


This will be fixed in FreeIPA 4.0.2. Note that this only affects if
you are changing MinSSF for whole DS by nsslapd-minssf.


I guess the part I don't get here, is that this setting does not
disable anonymous access to rootdse it just requires, as far as I
understand, that TLS or some security be used for the connection.

I currently have minssf set to 56 and am able to anonymously bind and
obtain the rootdse.
This assumes you have CA certificate available so that you can
successfully verify TLS handshake. When you are enrolling a client, you
don't have the certificate yet.
