When is the EXTERNAL mech proposed? I want to use peercred on a slapd

$ ldapsearch -xLLLH ldapi:/// -s base -b '' supportedSASLMechanisms
supportedSASLMechanisms: DIGEST-MD5
supportedSASLMechanisms: PLAIN
supportedSASLMechanisms: LOGIN

I have other machines when it shows up without a hassle. Where is the
setting that cause it to be proposed?

Look at your sasl slapd.conf if it exists (e.g. /usr/lib/sasl2/slapd.conf,
or /etc/sasl/slapd.conf).

If you have a mech_list listed within that file, then either comment it
out, or add EXTERNAL to it.

Check your syslog (including the auth facility) for any errors.
