SASL (again)

  Please, someone MUST know what is going wrong here:
I try:
[root@linux3 tools]# ./ldapsearch -h intranet.ivorytower.co.za
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: No such object

The FAQ says this means "that LDAP SASL authentication function could not
read the Root DSE. "

Can someone tell me how to allow SASL to read the Root DSE?


[root@linux3 tools]# ./ldapsearch -D "cn=<root>,dc=ivorytower,dc=co,dc=za" -
b "" -I -Y DIGEST-MD5 -h intranet.ivorytower.co.za
SASL/DIGEST-MD5 authentication started
SASL Interaction
Default: ....
Please enter your authentication name: <root>
Please enter your authorization name: <root>
Please enter your password:
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Unknown error
        additional info: unable to get user's secret

If I do this:

[root@linux3 tools]# ./ldapsearch -D
"cn=<root>,dc=ivorytower,dc=co,dc=za"" -
b "" -Wxs base -LLL supportedSASLMechanisms -h intranet.ivorytower.co.za
Enter LDAP Password:
supportedSASLMechanisms: DIGEST-MD5
supportedSASLMechanisms: CRAM-MD5

My slapd.conf:

#sasl-host intranet.ivorytower.co.za  - uncommenting these did not resolve
the issues
#sasl-secprops none
#sasl-realm intranet.ivorytower.co.za
database        ldbm
suffix          "dc=ivorytower,dc=co,dc=za"
rootdn          "cn=<myroot>,dc=ivorytower,dc=co,dc=za"

# Cleartext passwords, especially for the rootdn, should
# be avoid.  See slappasswd(8) and slapd.conf(5) for details.
# Use of strong authentication encouraged.
rootpw          <whatever>
# The database directory MUST exist prior to running slapd AND
# should only be accessible by the slapd/tools. Mode 700 recommended.
directory       /usr/local/var/openldap-ldbm
# Indices to maintain
