Thanks, yes, I'm aware of it, but it does not answer my question. It does
not tell me how to configure authentication against a Windows domain. The
only example it has is for sasldb and refers to SASL docs for the rest, but
I couldn't find anything useful there either. So if it is possible to
configure this I'm looking for a sample configuration file with
explanations, advice on how to troubleshoot errors, that sort of stuff.
