I add sasl-auxprops sasldb in openldap slapd.conf. And start slapd, run
/usr/local/openldap/bin/ldapsearch -U admin -b ou=people,dc=example,dc=com.
Gets the response as below:
SASL/DIGEST-MD5 authentication started
Please enter your password:
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Can't contact LDAP server (-1)
additional info: SASL(0): successful result
that's because slapd program is stopped for some reason, here is the log of slapd:
<==slap_sasl2dn: Converted SASL name to cn=admin,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
slap_sasl_getdn: dn:id converted to cn=admin,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com

It does! for auxprop_plugin, and auxprop_plugin only. After some digging I
found the insertion of a SASL_CB_GETOPT function which replaces whatever
auxprop_plugin value is found in the sasl config file with the
sasl-auxprops openldap config option, or defaults to 'slapd' if no
sasl-auxprops is defined.
It's perfectly documented in the slapd.conf man page... just never occurred
to me to look.
within the openldap slapd.conf works for me.
My mistake. This was added last year.
