Description Graham Leggett 2004-10-08 16:28:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
According to the man page for saslauthd, it is possible to
authenticate against an LDAP directory:

     ldap       (All platforms that support OpenLDAP 2.0 or higher)
                Authenticate against an ldap server.  The ldap
                parameters are read from
/usr/local/etc/saslauthd.conf.  The
                location of this file can be changed with the -O
                See the LDAP_SASLAUTHD file included with the
distribution for
                the list of available parameters.
According to the mechanism for determining which auth mechanisms are
supported, LDAP support is missing:

[root@chandler root]# /usr/sbin/saslauthd -v
saslauthd 2.1.15
authentication mechanisms: getpwent kerberos5 pam rimap shadow

Comment 1 Peter Bieringer 2005-03-08 11:49:28 UTC
I do not understand, why it's not LDAP enabled by default, here is a workaround,
rebuild package using fix below, proper working now here on my system.

Note also that version cyrus-sasl-2.1.19-5.EL4 of RHEL4 is LDAP enabled by default.
