No, userPassword is an attribute type.

1. add the following attribute to cn=config

2. SASL requires the attribute type 'uid', if your user entries don't
   have this attribute assigned to, add it, this may require the
   additional objectclass uidobject if your user entries do not belong
   to objectclass inetOrgPerson

3. In order to verify the SASL mechanism challenge, the value of
   userPassword has to be plaintext. To ensure this add something like
    olcPasswordHash: {CLEARTEXT}  
    to cn=config

3. Try something like 'ldapwhoami -Y digest-md5 -U someUser -w secret
   -H ldap://your.host'
   The result should be the DN of someUser
