I have a problem with Cyrus IMAP SASL authentication.
When I try to login to create Cyrus IMAP mailboxes, I see the following:
$ cyradm --user cyrus --auth login localhost
Login failed: generic failure at /usr/lib/perl5/Cyrus/IMAP/Admin.pm line 119
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with login as cyrus
This message appears even when I enter incorrect password. Can I be missing
some of the packages (I am running Ubuntu 9.04)?
I use sasldb authentication mechanism for saslauthd.
Here is an extract from my imapd.conf file:
This is what I see in my /var/log/mail.log
cyrus/imap: badlogin: localhost [::1] plaintext cyrus SASL(-1):
generic failure: checkpass failed
If I try to telnet on imap port I have:
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK computer Cyrus IMAP4 v2.2.13-Debian-2.2.13-14ubuntu3 server ready
imap login cyrus password
imap NO Login failed: generic failure
An interesting thing is that I have already setup Postfix sasldb
authentication on the same host and it works fine.
Any advice is much apreciated! Thank you in advance!
