From the much clearer explanation he emailed me off of the list:

I want to setup an openldap directory that authenticates against a
Active directory Kerberos server. Right now the test server running the
openldap server is a Redhat Linux AS 3 Server and it can authenticate

Can you give me some guidance in how to do this?

I have saslauth running with (/usr/sbin/saslauthd -m /var/run/saslauthd -a
kerberos5)  I am not sure if that is something I need.

Each user entry in the directory have the following kerberos attributes:
krb5PrincipalName: stest75@UNIV.UNIV.EDU
userPassword: {SASL}stest75@UNIV.UNIV.EDU

I also have a /usr/lib/sasl2/slapd.conf with:
