ldap_perror, ld_errno, ldap_result2error, ldap_errlist, ldap_err2string - LDAP protocol error handling routines LIBRARY
OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap) SYNOPSIS
#include <ldap.h> char *ldap_err2string( int err ); void ldap_perror( LDAP *ld, const char *s ) int ldap_result2error( LDAP *ld, LDAPMessage *res, int freeit ) DESCRIPTION
These routines provide interpretation of the various error codes returned by the LDAP protocol and LDAP library routines or associated with an LDAP session. The error code associated with an LDAP session is accessible using ldap_get_option(3) and ldap_set_option(3) with the LDAP_OPT_ERROR_NUMBER option. The ldap_result2error() routine takes res, a result as produced by ldap_result(3) or ldap_search_s(3), and returns the corresponding error code. Possible error codes are listed below. If the freeit parameter is non zero it indicates that the res parameter should be freed by a call to ldap_msgfree(3) after the error code has been extracted. The ld_errno field in ld is set and returned. The returned value can be passed to ldap_err2string() to get a text description of the message. The string returned from ldap_err2string() is a pointer to a static area that should not be modified. The ldap_perror() routine can be called to print an indication of the error on standard error, similar to the way perror(3) works. ERRORS
The possible values for an ldap error code are: LDAP_SUCCESS The request was successful. LDAP_OPERATIONS_ERROR An operations error occurred. LDAP_PROTOCOL_ERROR A protocol violation was detected. LDAP_TIMELIMIT_EXCEEDED An LDAP time limit was exceeded. LDAP_SIZELIMIT_EXCEEDED An LDAP size limit was exceeded. LDAP_COMPARE_FALSE A compare operation returned false. LDAP_COMPARE_TRUE A compare operation returned true. LDAP_STRONG_AUTH_NOT_SUPPORTED The LDAP server does not support strong authentication. LDAP_STRONG_AUTH_REQUIRED Strong authentication is required for the operation. LDAP_PARTIAL_RESULTS Partial results only returned. LDAP_NO_SUCH_ATTRIBUTE The attribute type specified does not exist in the entry. LDAP_UNDEFINED_TYPE The attribute type specified is invalid. LDAP_INAPPROPRIATE_MATCHING Filter type not supported for the specified attribute. LDAP_CONSTRAINT_VIOLATION An attribute value specified violates some constraint (e.g., a postalAddress has too many lines, or a line that is too long). LDAP_TYPE_OR_VALUE_EXISTS An attribute type or attribute value specified already exists in the entry. LDAP_INVALID_SYNTAX An invalid attribute value was specified. LDAP_NO_SUCH_OBJECT The specified object does not exist in The Directory. LDAP_ALIAS_PROBLEM An alias in The Directory points to a nonexistent entry. LDAP_INVALID_DN_SYNTAX A syntactically invalid DN was specified. LDAP_IS_LEAF The object specified is a leaf. LDAP_ALIAS_DEREF_PROBLEM A problem was encountered when dereferencing an alias. LDAP_INAPPROPRIATE_AUTH Inappropriate authentication was specified (e.g., LDAP_AUTH_SIMPLE was specified and the entry does not have a user- Password attribute). LDAP_INVALID_CREDENTIALS Invalid credentials were presented (e.g., the wrong password). LDAP_INSUFFICIENT_ACCESS The user has insufficient access to perform the operation. LDAP_BUSY The DSA is busy. LDAP_UNAVAILABLE The DSA is unavailable. LDAP_UNWILLING_TO_PERFORM The DSA is unwilling to perform the operation. LDAP_LOOP_DETECT A loop was detected. LDAP_NAMING_VIOLATION A naming violation occurred. LDAP_OBJECT_CLASS_VIOLATION An object class violation occurred (e.g., a "must" attribute was missing from the entry). LDAP_NOT_ALLOWED_ON_NONLEAF The operation is not allowed on a nonleaf object. LDAP_NOT_ALLOWED_ON_RDN The operation is not allowed on an RDN. LDAP_ALREADY_EXISTS The entry already exists. LDAP_NO_OBJECT_CLASS_MODS Object class modifications are not allowed. LDAP_OTHER An unknown error occurred. LDAP_SERVER_DOWN The LDAP library can't contact the LDAP server. LDAP_LOCAL_ERROR Some local error occurred. This is usually a failed dynamic memory allocation. LDAP_ENCODING_ERROR An error was encountered encoding parameters to send to the LDAP server. LDAP_DECODING_ERROR An error was encountered decoding a result from the LDAP server. LDAP_TIMEOUT A timelimit was exceeded while waiting for a result. LDAP_AUTH_UNKNOWN The authentication method specified to ldap_bind() is not known. LDAP_FILTER_ERROR An invalid filter was supplied to ldap_search() (e.g., unbalanced parentheses). LDAP_PARAM_ERROR An ldap routine was called with a bad parameter. LDAP_NO_MEMORY An memory allocation (e.g., malloc(3) or other dynamic memory allocator) call failed in an ldap library routine.
