The ldap command-line tools will try to use SASL by default (this is
required by the LDAP standard). If you have not configured SASL then
you need to specify the -x flag to turn it off.

If you want to use SASL, read the SASL section of the Admin Guide:


As a minimum you will need to store plain-text passwords and set up
some ID mapping if you plan to use the DIGEST-MD5 mechanism.

SASL is not essential, and in many environments it is sufficient to use
plain password authentication along with TLS encryption of sessions.
SASL is more likely to be useful if you have a Kerberos environment
