saslauxprop and libldapdb, auxpropfunc error -7
I'm not quite sure if this belongs on this list or the Cyrus-SASL list,
but thought I'd start here.
I would like to have services that use SASL authentication
(specifically Cyrus IMAP) be capable of CRAM-MD5 and DIGEST-MD5
authentication with the users password being stored in OpenLDAP,
instead of the standard /etc/sasldb. My goal is to be able to have one
store for usernames and passwords that I can use across multiple
services (i.e., login, Cyrus IMAP, Squid, etc).
If I understand correctly, I the way to do this is with the Cyrus
"auxprop" mechanism. In the "contrib" directory of the OpenLDAP
(version 2.1.12) distribution, there is Howard Chu's libldapdb plugin.
I've attempted to follow his instructions on compiling and installing
it, and as far as I can tell, I've been successful.
However I have no joy when trying to us it. When I start slapd, I
immediately note an error in my system log
Phoenicia slapd: auxpropfunc error -7
I get the same error as soon as my IMAP server tries to authenticate a
user. I see no messages from the console where slapd is running in
debug mode (256). Running the IMAP server in gdb, and using the "show
info" command, it does not appear that the libldapdb library is loaded.
My assumption is that I've not compiled it correctly. I've been less
than successful in finding much other documentation around for doing
this. If anyone knows of some, It would be helpful. Once I muddle my
way though this, I'll post the procedure.
RedHat 8.0 on Intel (dual PIII)
Cyrus SASL 2.1.12

Thanks for any insight or help.
