#1180 Manpage for ldap_sasl_mech should be made more clear
Closed: Invalid None Opened 10 years ago by mpizzoli.

As reported in the mailing list (https://fedorahosted.org/pipermail/sssd-devel/2012-February/008505.html) SSSD fails to connect to the LDAP server if it finds only GSSAPI as supportedSASLMechanisms.
It should be assuming simple bind is always available.

This was actually a misconfiguration due to the man page reading:

       ldap_sasl_mech (string)
           Specify the SASL mechanism to use. Currently only GSSAPI is tested and supported.

           Default: none

The user had set

ldap_sasl_mech = none

We should fix the manpage so it reads "not set" instead of "none" to avoid confusion.
