This is funny because I redirect the logs of OpenLDAP in an own file
by an entry in

# OpenLDAP
local4.* /var/log/ldap.log

What does these log entries mean?


Those log entries are generated by the cyrus sasl library, and sent to the
LOG_AUTH facility and probably at LOG_DEBUG level. You could reduce the log
level of your auth facility to discard those messages.

However, the actual source of the error is probably due to cyrus attempting
to make use of an auxprop store that you don't care to be using (such as
sasldb, sql, or ldapdb).

Instead of reconfiguring your rsyslog.conf, you may be able to stop the
messages by configuring a sasl slapd.conf (e.g. /usr/lib/sasl2/slapd.conf)
configuration with the following contents:

auxprop_plugin: slapd
