NAME

       dpns_startsess - start session

SYNOPSIS

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

       int dpns_startsess (char *server, char *comment);

DESCRIPTION

       dpns_startsess  starts  session.   The  connection  to  the Name Server is kept open until
       dpns_endsess  is  explicitly  called.   Requests   issued   between   dpns_startsess   and
       dpns_endsess  are  independent  from  each  other and are individually committed or rolled
       back.  The comment is logged in the server log.

RETURN VALUE

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

ERRORS

       EINVAL       The length of comment exceeds CA_MAXCOMMENTLEN.

       SENOSHOST    Host unknown.

       SENOSSERV    Service unknown.

       SECOMERR     Communication error.

       ENSNACT      Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
