int lfc_starttrans (char *server, char *comment);
DESCRIPTIONlfc_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.
RETURN VALUEThis routine returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation failed. In the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.
- The length of comment exceeds CA_MAXCOMMENTLEN.
- Host unknown.
- Service unknown.
- Communication error.
- Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
