Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 Administration Guide

Specifying Environment Variables

In the UNIX environment, you must set the SASL-PATH environment variable so that the LDAP tools can find the DIGEST-MD5 libraries. The DIGEST-MD5 library is a shared library that is dynamically loaded by the SASL plug-in. Set the SASL_PATH environment variable as follows:

export SASL_PATH=SASL-library

This path assumes that Directory Server is installed on the same host where the LDAP tools are invoked.
