Hello all,

I just switched to a new ldap server, and have managed to get quite a
bit working with the new ldap server, but can't get mail login
working. Unfortunately, this means I can't read the mailing list, so
please send replies to my gmail account: monstermama at gmail.com. I
have other things on the mail server working with ldap, so it isn't
the connection to the ldap server. I think I have properly updated the
certificates (certainly the ldap ones are working). The log says it is
a problem with pam:

Sep 23 01:13:37 ella saslauthd[22677]: (pam_unix) authentication
failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty= ruser= rhost=  user=maria
Sep 23 01:13:37 ella saslauthd[22677]: do_auth         : auth failure:
[user=maria] [service=imap] [realm=] [mech=pam] [reason=PAM acct

Sep 23 01:13:37 ella cyrus/imapd[22905]: badlogin: []
plaintext maria SASL(-13): authentication failure: checkpass failed
Sep 23 01:14:35 ella cyrus/master[22783]: process 22948 exited, status 0

I've made sure all these configs: libnss-ldap.ldap, pam_ldap.conf have
the correct ip.

Any ideas what else to check?
