LFC_STARTTRANS(3) LFC Library Functions LFC_STARTTRANS(3)

NAME

lfc_starttrans - start transaction mode

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/types.h>
#include "lfc_api.h"

int lfc_starttrans (char *server, char *comment);

DESCRIPTION

lfc_starttrans starts transaction mode. The connection to the Name Server is kept open until one of the DB update operation fails or lfc_aborttrans or lfc_endtrans is explicitly called. If all the DB update operations between lfc_starttrans and lfc_endtrans are successful, a COMMIT is done. If any DB update operation fails or if an explicit lfc_aborttrans is done, a ROLLBACK is done. The comment is logged in the server log.

RETURN VALUE

This routine returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation failed. In the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

EINVAL
The length of comment exceeds CA_MAXCOMMENTLEN.
SENOSHOST
Host unknown.
SENOSSERV
Service unknown.
SECOMERR
Communication error.
ENSNACT
Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
