Hi, Robert

Did you have a sasldb2 database before the last update to CSWsasl?  If
so, do you have a backup copy?  I have to leave, so we can get into
this more tomorrow, but I remember Damjan saying something about a
directory that has to have a group of sasl. Not sure about the file,
but it may also need to have group sasl assigned.

Use either your backup copy or create a new sasldb2 database with
`/opt/csw/sbin/saslpasswd2 -f /opt/csw/etc/sasldb2/sasldb2 -c user`

Does this work for you?  I think you said that you were wanting sasl2
with sendmail.  If true, a sendmail .mc file may need to be changed to
point to the new sasldb2 location.  Also, do you have a file
named /opt/csw/lib/sasl2/Sendmail.conf?  If true, post a cat of the

I can look into this more tomorrow.
