I've got a working OpenLDAP 2.2 running, and I can use simple binds to both modify and query the directory. However, I'm getting an error when I try to bind with SASL. The error is:

# ldapsearch -b "dc=mydomain,dc=com" "(objectclass=*)"
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: No such object

I have an ldap-readable keytab with a single principle -
ldap/fqdn@MYREALM.COM and I've defined KRB5_KTNAME in my environment.  I
also have my rootdn set up to be "uid=ldapadmin,cn=gssapi,cn=auth".  I
can kinint ldapadmin, receive the ticket, but then I get that "No such
object" error when I try to run an ldapsearch.

Any pointers? Thanks a bunch.

You are missing the Kerberos domain component. The identity coming in will be:

uid=ldapadmin,cn=<Kerberos domain>, cn=gssapi, cn=auth

For example, my SASL DN comes in as:
