Had a couple of top-flight Openldap and Postfix LDAP mentors ;)

I'm running RHEL3 too, so all compiles and stuff should work well
(though I'm now with OL 2.2.11/2.1.30). Just a couple of things, apart
from what Dieter wrote:

It seems to be barfing at saslAuthzTo.

Can't say for sure, but someone wrote that "dn.regex" in saslAuthzTo
didn't work for them; had to use plain "dn" instead, as I had orignally.
Try that. Also, at a given moment when updating OL versions, I had to
use a saslAuthzTo using an ldap uri (but it all works again now, with
your own version).:


Though the Admin Guide warns that this is resource-heavy. See if it

If you use RHEL3 with X, grab and compile/install GQ 1.0b1. Changing or
adding to the saslAuthzTo attribute (it's multi-valued) is a cinch,

> slapd.conf ACL

The ACLs should work, if admin can change passwords for users. Though
the whole ACL stuff has been radically improved and augmented in the
latest OL versions, making things much more logical to my mind.

Leave unnecessary stuff out of slapd.conf, till it works:

O.k., you can auth as admin.

One last thing: I had to go back to the OL 2.1.22 version of the ldapdb
auxprop to get it to work with Postfix after a Cyrus SASL update - I
don't know why. It would be interesting to read what others' experience
is with the latest (2.2.11 or 2.1.30) ldapdb version, but AFAICS *very*
few Postfix LDAP people use auxprop, most use pam or saslauthd -> sasldb
- which defeats the beauty of the whole LDAP/auxprop thing.




We make out of the quarrel with others rhetoric
but out of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry.
