Re: SASL Authentication

There is a long list of libs in /usr/lib/sasl2.
Which one should I delete?

Now I realize that it will check methods according to listed libs in certain order. Since I had previous installation of sasl2, the old libs were there even though I have the --disable option. So I deleted the whole /usr/lib/sasl2 directory and recompiled. Now I get SASL/DIGEST-MD5 as default.

New problem though, the autentication is failing for

# ldapwhoami -U root
SASL/DIGEST-MD5 authentication started
Please enter your password: ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Internal
(implementation specific) error (80)
additional info: SASL(-13):
user not found: no secret in database

But I started saslauthd as:

   saslauthd -a shadow

and root does exist in the shadow file. So why does it
think that it's doesn't exist?

I'm moving from shadow to ldap, but I wanted to verify
with shadow first before I migrate to ldap.
