Description John Newbigin 2009-02-17 20:09:18 EST
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080716 CentOS/ Firefox/ pango-text

config files for sasl applications are stored in /usr/lib/sasl2 instead of /etc (or /etc/sasl2)

eg:  rpm -qf /usr/lib/sasl2/Sendmail.conf

This is also mentioned in 14.5.1. Configuring slapd to use an authentication provider

There is a comment in lib/server.c
/* get the path to the plugins; for now the config file will reside there */
and then calls

The latest version (cyrus-sasl-2.1.22) has been changed and now uses
_sasl_find_getconfpath_callback which can be configured with the --with-configdir option.

Reproducible: Always

We cannot change this in already released Red Hat Enterprise Linux distribution. It is fixed in the RHEL-5 release cyrus-sasl package.
