I am migrating my imap server to a jail, I got the jail up and 
cyrus-imapd starts. I have copied configuration files from the current 
server, cyrus.conf, imapd.conf and passwd and group files. saslauthd is 
running, yet when I try to login I get the error:

IMAP Password:
               Login failed: generic failure at 
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/mach/Cyrus/IMAP/ line 120
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with  as cyrus

in /var/log/messages

in imap log file:

Jun 17 13:40:07 jail imap[2280]: badlogin: [] 
plaintext cyrus at SASL(-1): generic failure: checkpass failed

jails hostname is jail (maybe not the best choice). I'm using FBSD 7.2 
for both host and jail system, jail installed with packages:


Thanks, Erik
