Description Robert Scheck 2005-09-01 10:03:08 EDT
Description of problem:
I've the following error message in syslog (/var/log/messages) after updating to 
Rawhide and restarting saslauthd and sendmail:

[...] sendmail[18698]: auxpropfunc error invalid parameter supplied

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce & how reproducible:
Everytime, restart sendmail.

Actual results:
I searched a bit in the Internet and only got, that the problem is ldapdb 
related. When I built cyrus-sasl myself with --disable-ldapdb, the problem 

Expected results:
No error message in syslog! ;-)

Additional info:
I filed this bug against cyrus-sasl, because I think this problem caused by 
cyrus-sasl and not by sendmail.
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2005-09-01 16:11:54 EDT
The ldapdb plugin gets loaded, and I don't see any way to disable it in your
configuration without also disabling sasldb support.  As a temporary workaround,
try adding "ldapdb_uri: ldapi:///" to /usr/lib/sasl2/Sendmail.conf.
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2005-09-01 16:17:32 EDT
I guess moving the ldapdb auxprop module into yet another subpackage is the most
workable solution.
