I am trying to get cyrus-imapd and saslauthd running together so
that I can get squirrelmail to work. I have accomplished this on
several other servers and have relatively complete documentation on
how to do this. What I am running into in this case has me baffled.
If I start saslauthd as a service:
# service saslauthd start
And I try testsaslauthd -u cyrus -p test
Then I see this:
0: NO "authentication failed"
and in the syslog I see this::
saslauthd: do_auth : auth failure: [user=cyrus]
[service=imap] [realm=] [mech=pam] [reason=PAM auth error]
However, if I stop the system service:
# service saslauthd stop
and I run the saslauthd daemon from the tty with debug on:
# saslauthd -a shadow -d -n 6
then when I try
# testsaslauthd -u cyrus -p test
0: OK "Success."
Anyone have a clue for me as to what is going on here?
