Subversion 1.6.16 SASL, LDAP problem to determine problem source(fodrek)

From: Peter Fodrek <peter.fodrek_at_stuba.sk>

Dear SVN experts,

I would like to ask, how to setup subversion to work with sasl and LDAP
(LDAP server I am not able to reconfigure and runs on another machine)

I was tested this configuration on the MAC OS X machine where svn repositories
with conf/paswd file plain password authentication that works. It does not
work on the slackware machine
where sasldb authentification via password database works as well.

I am not able to find out, where the problem is.

A) LDAP works well on MAC and slack as well
ldapsearch -x -h ldap.stuba.sk -b "ou=People,dc=stuba, dc=sk" -W -D
"uid=fodrek,ou=People,dc=stuba,dc=sk" uid=*fodrek*|egrep employ
Enter LDAP Password:
employeeType: staff
employeeType: ext
employeeType: ext
employeeType: student
employeeType: staff

B) but svn does not work

 svn co svn://
Authentication realm: <svn://> ldap
Password for 'mini1':
Authentication realm: <svn://> ldap
Username: fodrek
Password for 'fodrek':
Authentication realm: <svn://> ldap
Username: fodrek
Password for 'fodrek':
svn: Authentication error from server: SASL(-13): user not found: no secret in

C) svnlog on the server shows
16535 2012-04-04T15:14:46.636745Z - - ERR
subversion/libsvn_ra_svn/streams.c 149 210002 Network connection closed

D) my svnserve.conf of the ldapova repository is

anon-access = none
auth-access = write

realm = ldap
use-sasl = true

Base=employeeType= staff,ou=People,dc=stuba,dc=sk

log_level: 7
pwcheck_method: auxprop
auxprop_plugin: ldap

E) and my /private/etc/sasluathd.conf

ldap_servers: ldap://ldap.stuba.sk
ldap_default_domain: stuba.sk
ldap_search_base: OU=People,DC=stuba,DC=sk
#ldap_bind_dn: techuser_at_mydomain.com
#ldap_bind_pw: password
ldap_deref: never
ldap_restart: no
#ldap_scope: sub
ldap_use_sasl: no
ldap_start_tls: no
#ldap_version: 3
ldap_auth_method: bind
ldap_filter: uid=%u
ldap_password_attr: userPassword
ldap_timeout: 10
ldap_cache_ttl: 30
ldap_cache_mem: 32768

I would like to be informed how to determine, what I was done not correct

Thank you for any help

I look forward hearing from you

Yours faithfully

Peter Fodrek
