And off course slapd has to be kerberized first to make this work.

Presumably he is doing plaintext authentication to slapd rather than
gssapi, and having saslauthd validate the username and password against
a kerberos5 server.

Why do you think so? Diego mentioned kinit and klist in the original posting:


Therefore I presume he wants to use SASL/GSSAPI. But only he can tell us what
he really wants to achieve.

It's clear what his intentions where from this snippet, from the original

I've also set up SASL to use the kerberos5 auth mechanism and it seems to

root@filesystem:~# testsaslauthd -u diego.lima@USERS -p 123456
0: OK "Success."
Which means he was successful in configuring saslauthd to use the kerberos5
authmech (see the manual page).

His problem is not with any kerberos5 configuration, but rather a usage
question in how to use the ldap client utilities and how to configure his
user entries to support SASL.
