Re: Default authentication method

I am trying to use the postfix MTA with open-ldap-client-2 package from
SuSE 7.3 professional.
But I rushed into a problem:
When I use ldapsearch, I have to pass additional parameters: "-x -P 2" to
get results. But postfix cannot do this or yet I have not found out how
it could. When I use ldapsearch without this parameters I always get:
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Unknown authentication method
By default ldapsearch tries to read the supportedSASLMechanisms from the
servers rootDSE. Since this is only supported in LDAPv3 you get the above
Because of this, I think postfix also has a bind problem.
So my question is:
Can I set a system wide default, that ldap client libs and all
applications always use simple authentication and protocol version 2?
see man 5 ldap.conf, but I doubt postfix takes it into account. You should
take a look at the servers logfile to see how postfix attempts to connect.
