Thanks for a reply but :

What do I put as rootdn ?

Whatever you want.

Do I have to specify rootpw in slapd.conf.

Only if you want to use the root dn to bind with.

yes, exactly
I want to use rootdn to bind with
And I want rootdn data (uid, password or whatever) to be stored in sasldb

What file should I create in /usr/lib/sasl ?

Depends on the service authenticating with SASL. It could be
"smtp", or "imap" (I think)... you'll need to look up the correct file

I know
But what file name should I use for OpenLDAP

What users and realms should I add to sasldb ?

If you're authenticating against LDAP I'd recommend using PAM and
then configure PAM to authenticated against LDAP. Then you'll be able to
do cool things like ssh in, even though there is only an entry in your
LDAP database and not in your password file.

I'll do that as soon as any configuration with SASL starts working.
I know I can use pwcheck_method: pam in SASL,
and then use pam_ldap .

But so far I'd like to keep usernames and passwords in sasldb.

But I can't make it work,
