I ran into a problem to run testsaslauthd and got an error below following the step after “sudo chmod 755 the saslauthd folder” as in the lecture :-
0: No “authentication failed”
In fact, when i tried to start saslauthd start server after I modified the saslauthd.conf, I got a message below and it doesn’t say “SASL Authentication Daemon saslauthd done”:-
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start saslauthd.service
But when i tried to run “ps wax | grep saslauthd” to see if there are any saslauthd running and seems like I got 5 running
Wonder if my saslauthd.conf is not correct. For the ldap_servers, I used infrastructure.m310.mongodb.university as stated in the homework.
Do I need to add ldap:// in front and as well the port no 389 to the end? (Well I tried but still not getting OK: success for testsaslauthd)
Was I too early to run the testsaslauthd?
But I did ignore the testsaslauth authentication failed and continued the exercise and created the first user but I couldn’t authenticate the user afterwards.
Would like to see if the reason why I couldn’t authenticate the first user was due to the fact that the testsaslauthd step failed at the beginning.
