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 );

DESCRIPTION

       The ldap_err2string() routine provides short description of the various codes returned  by
       routines  in  this library.  The returned string is a pointer to a static area that should
       not be modified.

       These codes are either negative, indicating an API error  code;  positive,  indicating  an
       LDAP resultCode other than ´success' (0), or - zero, indicating both successful use of the
       API and the LDAP resultCode ´success' (0).

       The code associated with an  LDAP  session  is  accessible  using  ldap_get_option(3)  and
       ldap_set_option(3)    with    the    LDAP_OPT_RESULT_CODE    option   (previously   called
       LDAP_OPT_ERROR_NUMBER).

PROTOCOL RESULT CODES

       This section provides a partial list of protocol codes recognized by the library.  As LDAP
       is  extensible,  additional values may be returned.  A complete listing of registered LDAP
       result  codes  can  be   obtained   from   the   Internet   Assigned   Numbers   Authority
       <http://www.iana.org>.

       LDAP_SUCCESS        The request was successful.

       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

       LDAP_CONSTRAINT_VIOLATION
                           An  attribute  value  specified  violates  some  constraint  (e.g.,  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_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_BUSY           The DSA is busy.

       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.

API ERROR CODES

       This section provides a complete list of API error codes recognized by the library.   Note
       that LDAP_SUCCESS indicates success of an API call in addition to representing the  return
       of the LDAP ´success' resultCode.

       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.

       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 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.

       LDAP_NO_MEMORY      An  memory  allocation  (e.g.,  malloc(3)  or  other  dynamic   memory
                           allocator) call failed in an ldap library routine.

       LDAP_USER_CANCELED  Indicates the user cancelled the operation.

       LDAP_CONNECT_ERROR  Indicates a connection problem.

       LDAP_NOT_SUPPORTED  Indicates  the  routine  was  called  in a manner not supported by the
                           library.

       LDAP_CONTROL_NOT_FOUND
                           Indicates the control provided is unknown to the client library.

       LDAP_NO_RESULTS_RETURNED
                           Indicates no results returned.

       LDAP_MORE_RESULTS_TO_RETURN
                           Indicates more results could be returned.

       LDAP_CLIENT_LOOP    Indicates the library has detected a loop in its processing.

       LDAP_REFERRAL_LIMIT_EXCEEDED
                           Indicates the referral limit has been exceeded.

DEPRECATED

       Deprecated interfaces generally remain in the library.  The macro LDAP_DEPRECATED  can  be
       defined to a non-zero value (e.g., -DLDAP_DEPRECATED=1) when compiling program designed to
       use deprecated interfaces.  It is recommended that developers  writing  new  programs,  or
       updating old programs, avoid use of deprecated interfaces.  Over time, it is expected that
       documentation (and, eventually, support) for deprecated interfaces to be eliminated.
