LDAP_ERROR(3)									    LDAP_ERROR(3)

       ldap_perror,  ld_errno,	ldap_result2error,  ldap_errlist, ldap_err2string - LDAP protocol
       error handling routines

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

       #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 )

       These routines provide interpretation of the various error codes returned by the LDAP pro-
       tocol  and LDAP library routines or associated with an LDAP session.  The error code asso-
       ciated 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.

       The possible values for an ldap error code are:

       LDAP_SUCCESS	   The request was successful.

			   An operations error occurred.

       LDAP_PROTOCOL_ERROR A protocol violation was detected.

			   An LDAP time limit was exceeded.

			   An LDAP size limit was exceeded.

       LDAP_COMPARE_FALSE  A compare operation returned false.

       LDAP_COMPARE_TRUE   A compare operation returned true.

			   The LDAP server does not support strong authentication.

			   Strong authentication is required for the operation.

			   Partial results only returned.

			   The attribute type specified does not exist in the entry.

       LDAP_UNDEFINED_TYPE The attribute type specified is invalid.

			   Filter type not supported for the specified attribute.

			   An attribute value specified violates some constraint (e.g., a postal-
			   Address has too many lines, or a line that is too long).

			   An  attribute  type or attribute value specified already exists in the

       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.

			   A syntactically invalid DN was specified.

       LDAP_IS_LEAF	   The object specified is a leaf.

			   A problem was encountered when dereferencing an alias.

			   Inappropriate authentication was specified (e.g., LDAP_AUTH_SIMPLE was
			   specified and the entry does not have a userPassword attribute).

			   Invalid credentials were presented (e.g., the wrong password).

			   The user has insufficient access to perform the operation.

       LDAP_BUSY	   The DSA is busy.

       LDAP_UNAVAILABLE    The DSA is unavailable.

			   The DSA is unwilling to perform the operation.

       LDAP_LOOP_DETECT    A loop was detected.

			   A naming violation occurred.

			   An object class violation occurred (e.g., a "must" attribute was miss-
			   ing from the entry).

			   The operation is not allowed on a nonleaf object.

			   The operation is not allowed on an RDN.

       LDAP_ALREADY_EXISTS The entry already exists.

			   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

       LDAP_ENCODING_ERROR An  error  was  encountered	encoding  parameters  to send to the LDAP

       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

       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 alloca-
			   tor) call failed in an ldap library routine.

       ldap(3), perror(3)
