Feature: expand default list of sasl mechs in /etc/sasl2/qpidd.conf, and write explanatory comments and release note.
Reason: Previously, we decided to remove the GSSAPI mech from the default list, because its presence would cause many installations to fail by default if "--auth yes" was used on the broker command line. But I also removed a lot of mechanisms that did not need to be removed.
Result (if any):
The mechanism list in the file /etc/sasl2/qpidd.conf
has been changed to "ANONYMOUS DIGEST-MD5 EXTERNAL PLAIN".
Please note that GSSAPI is no longer included in this
If you would like to enable GSSAPI:
1. Change the mech_list line in /etc/sasl2/qpidd.conf to
2. In the file /etc/qpidd.conf , add these lines:
3. Follow instructions in Qpid documentation to install
and enable GSSAPI service.
