lfc_starttrans - start transaction mode
#include <sys/types.h> #include "lfc_api.h" int lfc_starttrans (char *server, char *comment);
lfc_starttrans starts transaction mode. The connection to the Name Server is kept open until one of the DB update operation fails or lfc_aborttrans or lfc_endtrans is explicitly called. If all the DB update operations between lfc_starttrans and lfc_endtrans are successful, a COMMIT is done. If any DB update operation fails or if an explicit lfc_aborttrans is done, a ROLLBACK is done. The comment is logged in the server log.
This routine returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation failed. In the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.
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.
