SASL: could not find auxprop plugin
Posted on 2006-05-29
I am about to pull my hair out...
I have a working Postfix server, which I installed from an RPM that comes with my OS' install DVD (Mandrakelinux 10.1). Everything works fine and well. However, now it is needed to support SMTP authentication so our laptop users can send mail from outside the house. So I read all kinds of HOWTOs and installed OpenSSL and CyrusSASL. The Postfix RPM description states that it supports SASL.
Here's what I changed in the configuration files:
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_reipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, permit_sasl_authenticated, reject_unauth_destination
turned off all chroot options
mech_list: plain login
I also have to link /usr/lib/sasl2 pointing to /usr/local/lib/sasl2.
According to what I've read (and that's not quite a bit), it should work. However, clients can not log on, and I get the following in my log:
SASL authentication misc: could not find auxprop plugin, was searching for '[all]'
warning: SASL authentication problem: unknown password verifier
warning: SASL authentication failure: Password verification failed
warning: localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]: SASL PLAIN authentication failed
localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]: 535 Error: authentication failed
Any ideas? Please help me...
