Re: Can't init ldap db

This is an old reported problem.  hdb_open use the ldap_sasl_bind() function
call, this one use the SASL_EXTERNAL mechanism whis is implemented in a
earlier Openladap version than yours. You need to use at least OpenLDAP
If you use OpenLDAP 2.0.x you won't get anything working!!!!
The heimdal version that you are using is right, however.

Subject: Can't init ldap db

I'm trying to configure Heimdal and Openldap for auth services.  I have
been following Jose Gómez HowTo,

RedHat AS 3.0
I'm using RH standard ldap RPMs.
openldap-servers-2.0.27-11, etc
I built my own Heimdal RPMs.
heimdal-server-0.6.2, etc

I'm getting this error when trying to init the Heimdal realm.
kadmin> init RPI.EDU
kadmin: hdb_open: ldap_sasl_bind_s: Authentication method not supported

slapd.conf contains the following.

# SASL configuration
sasl-host   someserver.rpi.edu
sasl-realm  RPI.EDU

The sasl-regexp is ignored at startup, I imagine it isn't supported in
this version.

Also, I can't seem to connect to ldap with a browser on port 636,
although I can connect on port 389.

I'm missing something in my config. Any thoughts?  TIA.
