Hi. Thank you for your question and reaching out. I’d be more than happy to help you with your query.
Unsigned LDAP binds are generally used as a way to authenticate users or services to a given domain controller. In this case, it appears that the localhost is attempting to authenticate itself to the domain controller in order to access resources or services hosted on that machine.
If you start rejecting unsigned LDAP binds, it is possible that certain services may no longer be able to access the domain controller and may stop working. The localhost should be able to authenticate itself using a signed LDAP bind instead. To stop the localhost from requesting unsigned LDAP binds, you should configure the server to use a signed LDAP bind for authentication. This can be done by setting the LDAP_SIGNING option in the server’s configuration file. Additionally, you should ensure that the server’s DNS is configured correctly and that Kerberos authentication is set up correctly. Once all of these steps have been completed, the localhost should be able to authenticate itself correctly and should no longer attempt to use an unsigned LDAP bind.
