Why am I having a problem running dbconverter-2 to upgrade from SASLv1 to SASLv2?¶
The migration is documented in the official documentation.
When migrating the
/etc/sasldb database using the
utility, you may encounter the error message “Error opening password
file”. This is usually due to the fact your SASL V1 library was compiled
using a different version of Berkeley DB than the SASL V2 library. You
can work around this by using Berkeley DB’s db_upgrade utility (possibly
chaining the DB3 and DB4 upgrade utilities) to upgrade a copy of sasldb
prior to conversion using dbconverter-2.
Here is the script we use at our installation, where SASL has to coexist with SASL2:
#!/bin/sh cp /etc/sasldb /tmp/sasldb.$$ /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4/bin/db_upgrade /etc/sasldb echo ""|/usr/local/sasl/sbin/dbconverter-2 cp /tmp/sasldb.$$ /etc/sasldb
