       lfc_mkdirg - create a new LFC directory in the name server with the specified GUID


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

       int lfc_mkdirg (const char *path, const char *guid, mode_t mode)


       lfc_mkdirg creates a new LFC directory in the name server with the specified GUID.

       An  entry  is  created in the name server database with the given GUID and the directory's
       owner ID is set to the effective user ID of the requestor.  The group ID of the  directory
       is set to the effective group ID of the requestor or is taken from the parent directory if
       the latter has the S_ISGID bit set.

       The access permission bits for the directory are taken from mode, then all bits set in the
       requestor's  file mode creation mask are cleared (see lfc_umask(3)).  The S_ISGID, S_ISUID
       and S_ISVTX bits are silently cleared.

       guid   specifies the Grid Unique IDentifier.

       path   specifies the logical pathname relative to the current LFC directory  or  the  full
              LFC pathname.


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


       ENOENT       A component of path prefix does not exist or path is a null pathname.

       EACCES       Search permission is denied on a  component  of  the  path  prefix  or  write
                    permission on the parent directory is denied.

       EFAULT       path is a NULL pointer.

       EEXIST       path exists already.

       EINVAL       The length of the guid exceeds CA_MAXGUIDLEN.

       ENOTDIR      A component of path prefix is not a directory.

       ENOSPC       The name server database is full.

       ENAMETOOLONG The  length  of  path exceeds CA_MAXPATHLEN or the length of a path component
                    exceeds CA_MAXNAMELEN.

       SENOSHOST    Host unknown.

       SENOSSERV    Service unknown.

       SECOMERR     Communication error.

       ENSNACT      Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
