Hi. I'm running in to a strange authentication problem and was hoping
someone could point me in the right direction.
I've configured cyrus-imapd-2.1.10 on a Solaris 8 box, along with
My imap.conf contains the following lines related to authentication:
I've started saslauthd as "saslauthd -a pam".
I then run "cyradm --user=mailadmin localhost" and enter the
password. I get a "cannot authenticate to server" message.
In /var/adm/messages the following gets logged:
imapd: [ID 702911 auth.error] unable to open Berkeley db no: No
such file or directory
The message used to read "/etc/sasldb2" instead of "no" before I
recompiled sasl with --without-dbpath.
Why is imapd trying to read the sasldb2 file instead of using
saslauthd and pam?
Also, I've set CYRUS_VERBOSE=1 in my environment and run master with
the -D option and nothing ever gets output to my terminal. I've tried
higher numbers, too. Isn't that suppose to provide debugging
