Re: pass-through authentication

I'm still having troubles with pass-through SASL on RHEL

testsaslauthd produces this message :
    0: NO "authentication failed"

With this in the system log :
          saslauthd logs reason=Unknown

When saslauthd is launched in verbose mode and followed by testsaslauthd  it prints :

connect() : No such file or directory

As per my ongoing LDAP SASL design question, can anyone recommend a good tutorial for pass-through authentication ?

Uwe, your assistance could be very helpful.   I followed Open LDAP tutorials but could not determine why the SASL requests fail.   I am a newcomer to LDAP.

Hello Tim,

we have set up such a setup where one can authenticate against OpenLDAP which redirects the request via saslauthd/kerberos to an AD server. Within the AD a service account with corresponding keytab will be necessary.

If you are interested I can try to get the pieces of information together again.

Betreff: pass-through authentication

We are attempting to set up an LDAP server which will answer queries from an application. The database will contain metadata on a set of users in the application. The application will also query the server to authenticate the user’s password, however, this server will not house the password. That resides on another server, which our server
will query.   We do not have administrative rights to the other

 The difficulty we are having now is setting up the pass-through authentication for the passwords. Any pointers in how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated.
