I believe I had to create a cyrus id under SASL that was assigned to whatever the default domain was that I specified in my imapd.conf.  Once I dd that I was able to login as cyrus (specifying no domain during login) and able to administer any of the domains.

I have a cyrus-imapd 2.2.3 installation and am using saslauthd from my
cyrus-sasl 2.1.15 installation, normal authentication to my virtual
domain users works fine.. (test at, test at,
However I can not login as the administrator (cyrus) which has no domain
component to the username.. Logging in fails every time and the auth.log
shows that saslauthd is being sent cyrus at mylocal.domain instead of just
cyrus.. And creating an entry in my ldap to handle cyrus at mylocal.domain
only has cyrus log the user into a mailbox in the virtual domain system
(ie not a super user)..
Is there a way to get cyrus imapd to NOT add on the domain to a user w/o
Otherwise I can not administer my domains at all..
and running the testsaslauthd program tests perfectly fine.. so it is
cyrus-imapd sending the data....
