hello experts,

Let me start off by saying that i'm not a  server guy.

if I wanted to run port 389 over TLS to my AD server, would that require that a SSL certificate be loaded on the AD server? If yes, how does that differ from LDAPS other than the port?

You would need to use Active Directory Certificate Services I think.  Below is a quite lengthy article describing how to set that up:

right. if LDAPs requires a cert and TLS over 389 requires a cert, what is the difference except for the port?

If you install a server authentication certificate on a domain controller then LDAPS will run on TCP port 636 when you restart your domain controller

TMASA99,

TLS over 389 also requires  a server authentication certificate on the DC, correct? So is it that if you select to keep port 389, then you are doing TLS over 389. If you select to use port 636, you are doing LDAPS?

There is no Start TLS available on 389, as it's the standard LDAP port and TLS requires a certificate, which is only used on the LDAPS port, 636, by default.
