RE: Basic Steps to get SASL working?

So you're telling me taht Kerberos is required?
I was under the impression that Kerberos is 'a' mechanism
option under sasl, thus it is not necessary to have it installed

Wrong way!

First Kerberos
Second SASL
Third OpenLDAP

That's because openldap uses sasl which uses kerberos, so you can't do
it the way YOU proposing...

    Fozia> 1) openldap 2.0.23 --with-spasswd --enable-cyrus-sasl
    Fozia> installed.  *slapd is running.  *CYRUS-SASL 1.5.27
    Fozia> installed.

If you're to use Kerberos, use '--with-kpasswd'...

    Fozia> sasl-host dev14 sasl-secprops none

Don't forget 'sasl-realm ...'.

    Fozia> 4) my slapd.conf in /usr/lib/sasl/
    Fozia> pwcheck_method: sasldb

Did you intend to use Kerberos or not? If you are, don't do that...
