This answer shows that you have 0 knowledge about
OpenLDAP access methods.
I suggest you read up on things like "SASL",
"anonymous binds", and "simple


    You seem to be asking irrelevant questions. What
has the bind method got to do with the test setup???.

What bind method you use can impact the server in a number of ways.

For example, lets say you are using SASL/GSSAPI, with Kerberos V. Now, if you are using MIT Kerberos as your kerberos libraries, it is likely that your whole setup with crash because of massive threading problems in the MIT Kerberos libraries. It is possible, of course, to go through and fix them yourself, but this isn't the case 'straight out of the box'. Knowing your bind mechanism can help point out where there are possible issues to examine.

What would also be useful to know, is what other packages OpenLDAP has been compiled against (cyrus-sasl, openssl, etc).
