Re: (ITS#6056) Samba4 breaks OpenLDAP over ldapi

libsasldb2.so is not required for a SASL bind with password-based
mechanism. You can store the passwords in attribute userPassword (in
clear-text). So the security consideration is more about password
storage than SASL vs. simple bind on the wire.

That would be good anyway since in Samba4 the result of standard
provision is LDAPI access anyway. So you could directly map the Unix
user smbd is running as (root?) with authz-regexp to directory user
samba-admin. Well, we already discussed that.. ;-)
