Why am I showing an error when loading LDAP module?

Hi.

When I try to use this add-on I see this error on myldap.py.log (on debug mode):

myldap:63 - ERROR: LDAP modul load failed with error libsasl2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory!

It happens on these operating systems:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.4 (Maipo)
CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core)

My Splunk Enterprise version is 7.0.4
My Python Version is 2.7.5.

How I correct this issue?

Hi bruce845,

writer of the app here, check the dependencies of the app:

Python ldap module used in this app https://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-ldap/2.4.19 so make sure you meet all dependencies.

The modul is very strict, and need to have the correct versions of all dependencies installed/available. See other answers with similar problems https://answers.splunk.com/answers/267564/add-on-ldap-why-am-i-getting-external-search-comma.html

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

You don't have to install the package, the package is included in the TA .... but you need to make sure that the included version has all needed dependencies available.

I'm not finding correct dependences for this add-on works on CentOS 7. On other distros (ex. Ubuntu), it works with no problems.

This LDAP add-on is very useful.

yeah, sorry to hear. It looks like CentOS does not like it very much ....

I had planed to update the app anyway, and to use a LDAP egg instead.

Feel free to accept the answer if it was helpful 🙂

Hi MuS.

Thanks for help me and your avaliability for answer my questions. Your add-on is very helpful, I need to contribute to inprove it.

Considering Red Hat/CentOS distros (version 7 is enough) in your plan to update, I'm sure that you'll make many Splunkers (including me) happier.

Hi MuS.

I find that libsasl2.so.2 is avaliable on package "cyrus-sasl-lib". But, i tried to install and it doesn't work. I'm trying to resolve this dependence.

On CentOS 7, I cannot find the package version that contains libsasl2.so.2
