Re: Error - not compiled with SASL support

Hoi Gaurav
if you did a vanilla install from a distro, you may be as lucky as to find a package in this distro (such as openldap-sasl or similar), which "converts" your LDAP server into an LDAP server, which is SASL capable. If there is no such package, there is no way around recompilation of the LDAP server.
Also, have you considered upgrading or re-installing the entire system?

Hello Howard,

Thks for your support.
I installed open ldap from source.

So, *the crux is:*
Q> First i need to install the cyrus-sasl package and then i need to
install the open-ldap with sasl option??
Plz confirm if my understanding is correct?

Now, my scenario is this:
In production open-ldap is already running with bind method =SIMPLE.
So, How can i switch to bind method=SASL?

I can plan for downtime, But re-compiling will take lot of time...and
its bit risky too.
Do we have any other way to implement SASL?

Thanks and Regards,
Gaurav Gugnani

            Hello All,

            I'm *trying to implement SASL on the openldap of version

            First we install the openldap and then we install the necessary
            packages of cyrus-sasl.

            *Packages of cyrus-sasl:* (installed in below mentioned order)

            After then i set up the SASL with proper ACL's (having the
            steps and
            also i setup the same on some other box where it running fine)
            *1>  *Modify /usr/lib64/sasl2/slapd.conf
                  *# SASL Configuration
                  pwcheck_method: auxprop
                  auxprop_plugin: slapd
                  mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN CRAM-MD5 DIGEST-MD5*
            *2>   *Modify $LDAP_HOME/etc/openladp/slapd.__conf
                   *password-hash  {CLEARTEXT}
                   authz-regexp uid=(.*),cn=DIGEST-MD5,cn=auth

            but it throws all together different error to me:
            /u01/app/openldap/product/2.4.__26/etc/openldap>  ldapwhoami -Y
            DIGEST-MD5 ldapwhoami: not compiled with SASL support

            And similar errors for ldapsearch and other commands.

            It suggests to me that some package installation is not proper.

            Can any one guide me on this.

        Check whether ldapwhoami is linked against libsasl2,
        ldd ldapwhoami

    There is nothing to check. The error message "not compiled with SASL
    support" could not be any plainer.

    If he installed OpenLDAP from a distro package, then he needs to
    complain to his distro provider. If he built OpenLDAP from source,
    then of course it had no SASL support since he says he didn't
    install SASL until *after* he installed OpenLDAP. Obviously you
    can't compile with SASL support if the SASL devel packages weren't
    already present at compile time.
