After installing dsfw & doing the provision wizard, I run into a weird
issue doing one of the validation steps per tid 7001884.

After exporting the LDAPCONF step, I try the ldapsearch:

ldapsearch -Y EXTERNAL -LLL -b
cn=Administrator,cn=users,dc=<domain>,dc=com sAMAccountName

When I run that, I get this:

SASL/EXTERNAL authentication started
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Unknown authentication method (-6)
additional info: SASL(-4): no mechanism available:

Every other validation step works as it should & the provisioning
wizard completed w/o a hitch.

Any ideas or suggestions?
