I have tested that the LDAP authentication through saslauthd using

How did you verify authentication was working with your internal server?
I verified the authentication by pointing the ldap server that the client uses to the
internal ldap server and check the logs messages of slapd and saslauthd and the result of
'su - user'
For example, when I used "su - peter" where peter is a user
external ldap server and the password is
authentication works. However, when I use "su - James" where james is a
user defined in the internal ldap server with password
then the authentication failed. I check the log file, the internal
server did get the search request forwarded from the external ldap
server and returned the correct information back. However, I did not
see the saslauthd process on either the external or the internal ldap
server get any inquiry for the authentication.

When I add uid to the -D flag in the ldapwhoami, then it failed on

ldapwhoami -x -H ldap://internalldap -D

-x -H ldap://externalldap -D
"uid=peter,ou=People,ou=sub,dc=example,dc=com" -w password
How does this second command (against your internal server) differ from the above
