NAME
ldap_error, ldap_err2string, ldap_perror, ldap_result2error - LDAP protocol error handling functions
SYNOPSIS
cc[ flag... ] file... -lldap[ library... ] #include <lber.h> #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 functions interpret the error codes that are returned by the LDAP API routines. The ldap_perror() and ldap_result2error() functions are deprecated for all new development. Use ldap_err2string() instead. You can also use ldap_parse_sasl_bind_result(3LDAP), ldap_parse_extended_result(3LDAP), and ldap_parse_result(3LDAP) to provide error han- dling and interpret error codes returned by LDAP API functions. The ldap_err2string() function takes err, a numeric LDAP error code, returned either by ldap_parse_result(3LDAP) or another LDAP API call. It returns an informative, null-terminated, character string that describes the error. The ldap_result2error() function takes res, a result produced by ldap_result(3LDAP) or other synchronous LDAP calls, and returns the corre- sponding error code. If the freeit parameter is non-zero, it indicates that the res parameter should be freed by a call to ldap_msgfree(3LDAP) after the error code has been extracted. Similar to the way perror(3C) works, the ldap_perror() function can be called to print an indication of the error to standard error.
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 Only partial results are 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 The filter type is not supported for the specified attribute. LDAP_CONSTRAINT_VIOLATION An attribute value specified violates some constraint. For example, 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. For example, LDAP_AUTH_SIMPLE was specified and the entry does not have a userPassword attribute. LDAP_INVALID_CREDENTIALS Invalid credentials were presented, for example, 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. For example, 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 cannot contact the LDAP server. LDAP_LOCAL_ERROR Some local error occurred. This is usually a failed malloc(). 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 time limit was exceeded while waiting for a result. LDAP_AUTH_UNKNOWN The authentication method specified to ldap_bind(3LDAP) is not known. LDAP_FILTER_ERROR An invalid filter was supplied to ldap_search(3LDAP), for example, unbalanced parentheses. LDAP_PARAM_ERROR An LDAP function was called with a bad parameter, for example, a NULL ld pointer, and the like. LDAP_NO_MEMORY A memory allocation call failed in an LDAP library function, for example, malloc(3C). LDAP_CONNECT_ERROR The LDAP client has either lost its connetion to an LDAP server or it cannot establish a connection. LDAP_NOT_SUPPORTED The requested functionality is not supported., for example, when an LDAPv2 client requests some LDAPv3 functionality. LDAP_CONTROL_NOT_FOUND An LDAP client requested a control not found in the list of supported controls sent by the server. LDAP_NO_RESULTS_RETURNED The LDAP server sent no results. LDAP_MORE_RESULTS_TO_RETURN More results are chained in the message chain. LDAP_CLIENT_LOOP A loop has been detected, for example, when following referrals. LDAP_REFERRAL_LIMIT_EXCEEDED The referral exceeds the hop limit. The hop limit determines the number of servers that the client can hop through to retrieve data.
