Hi, I'm a new list member, I’m a not an English native speaking (so,
please forgive any error you can find in this mail) and I'm trying to
install Dovecot in Debian Woody. I've installed the Dovecot package from
backports and I’m trying to configure it to get the credential
authentication from an LDAP backend.
This is the configuration process summary I’ve done; if you need some
configuration file I can post it with great pleasure.
In LDAP I’ve created the user cn=dovecot,ou=DSA,dc=flanet,dc=org, I’ve
configured this user to have read access to the userPassword field in
slapd.conf (the other parameter such as uid, directoryHome… can be read
as anonymous), I’ve configured the dovecot-ldap.conf to bind using the
“cn=dovecot,ou=DSA,dc=flanet,dc=org” and I set the *auth_userdb* and
*auth_passdb* of dovecot.conf to *ldap /path/to/dovecot-ldap.conf*.
When I’m trying to start dovecot in the mail.err log file I can find
> Oct 5 11:13:29 PDC-SMB dovecot-auth: LDAP: ldap_simple_bind_s() failed (dn cn=dovecot,ou=DSA,dc=flanet,dc=org): Invalid credentials
Is the problem that the ldap-password is stored in SSHA crypted mode and
in *dnpass* I've inserted it in plaintext? Or more in general, someone
can help me to find where I wrong and how can I try to solve it?
