Have you read the latest version of the 2.1 admin guide? The SASL
chapter is at:


This contains several examples, though if you just want to use sasldb
it is very easy:

1)	Make sure you have a username in sasldb, e.g.:

		saslpasswd -c myusername

2)	Make sure that SLAPD is running as a UID that can read the
	SASL database (usually root, though you could consider making
	/etc/sasldb owned by another user if SLAPD is the only thing
	that will access it)

3)	Use the client commands with the -U flag and without -x:

	ldapsearch -U myusername -b 'o=My Organization,c=RU' '(objectclass=*)'

Note that once you have more than one machine involved you need to start
specifying realm names explicitly, as the default is the full hostname
of the machine.
