Don't know about that...this is the latest documentation directly from the OpenLDAP site itself:
http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/guide.html

But, there could very well be other factors.

Ah, yes, the guide I was reading was Ubuntu specific, oops.
https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/servergu...l#openldap-tls

LDAP over TLS/SSL (ldaps://) is deprecated in favour of StartTLS. The latter refers to an existing LDAP session (listening on TCP port 389) becoming protected by TLS/SSL whereas LDAPS, like HTTPS, is a distinct encrypted-from-the-start protocol that operates over TCP port 636.
And I guess the protocol being deprecated still wouldn't have made the information deprecated, so, double oops.

No worries...still relevant information, since I'm positive there are folks who are still using the old method.
