I have an saslauthd setup to authenticate against PAM. It seems to do its stuff:
root@sasltest:~# testsaslauthd -u quest -p #### -s smtp 0: OK "Success."
I have libsasl 2.1.23, postfix 2.7.1.
I have a postfix configured thus:
smtpd_sasl_type = cyrus smtpd_sasl_path = /var/spool/postfix/private/saslauthd/mux smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
With a master.cf thus:
submission inet n - - - - smtpd -o smtpd_tls_security_level=encrypt -o smtpd_sasl_auth_enable=yes -o smtpd_client_restrictions=permit_sasl_authenticated,reject
However, trying to authenticate in this postfix gives the following error message:
Jan 23 22:13:14 sasltest postfix/smtpd: warning: SASL authentication problem: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Jan 23 22:13:14 sasltest postfix/smtpd: warning: SASL authentication problem: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Jan 23 22:13:14 sasltest postfix/smtpd: warning: X[A.B.C.D]: SASL LOGIN
authentication failed: authentication failure
Meanwhile, there is no output from my debug-logging saslauthd.
I interpret this as meaning that libsasl2 tries to uses sasldb auth rather than try to talk to saslauthd. What I can't figure out how to tell libsasl that I want it to talk to saslauthd.
Various instructions inform you to create a file /etc/sasl2/smtpd.conf or /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf. I have tried creating these files containing:
pwcheck_method: saslauthd mech_list: LOGIN PLAIN
But to no effect.
How do I instruct libsasl to use saslauthd authentication?
(I can of course create /var/spool/postfix/etc/sasldb2, but this will still not result in connections to saslauthd.)
