We have very strict ACIs when using EXTERNAL SASL as root.
Is there any reason you need to operate as root ?
you can also authenticate with SIMPLE (Dir MGr credentials), or
SASL/GSSAPI if you ahve credentials.

If you need to run unattended as root then we may need to make
root+SASL/EXTERNAL more powerful but I'd like to understand exactly why
you need that and can't use regular authentication with DirMgr or
GSSAPI credentials.

Simo.
