Description Jenny Severance 2009-01-08 13:01:00 UTC
Description of problem:
SASL/GSSAPI over SSL for replication bind is not supported, but you can configure replication agreements and initialize consumers with this configuration.  The bind fails and subsequently replication - but the errors in the errors log is too vague to know what the problem is.

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install two servers.
2.  Configure replication agreement to bind with SASL/GSSAPI over SSL
3.  View errors logs
  
Actual results:
Bind and replication fails with the following error:
Error: could not perform interactive bind for id [cn=replication manager,cn=config] mech [GSSAPI]: error 81

Expected results:
Better error message stating that GSSAPI is not supported over SSL.

Fix Description: If the user attempts to set the bind mech to GSSAPI, and a secure transport is being used, the server will return LDAP_UNWILLING_TO_PERFORM and provide a useful error message.  Same if GSSAPI is being used and the user attempts to use a secure transport.
Platforms tested: RHEL5
