LDAP_ERROR(3)									    LDAP_ERROR(3)

NAME
       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 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.

ERRORS
       The possible values for an ldap error code are:

       LDAP_SUCCESS	   The request was successful.

       LDAP_OPERATIONS_ERROR
			   An operations error occurred.

			   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 postal-
			   Address 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 userPassword 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_NAMING_VIOLATION
			   A naming violation occurred.

       LDAP_OBJECT_CLASS_VIOLATION
			   An object class violation occurred (e.g., a "must" attribute was miss-
			   ing 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.

			   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.
