NAME

lfc_registerfiles - register list of files with their corresponding replica entry  

SYNOPSIS

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

int lfc_registerfiles (int nbfiles, struct lfc_filereg *files, int *nbstatuses, int **statuses)  

DESCRIPTION

lfc_registerfiles registers a list of files with their corresponding replica entry. If the lfn is already registered, the guid is optional and only the replica is added (after checking that filesize and possibly checksum match). If the lfn is not registered yet, the guid is mandatory for the LFC. The lfn and the replica get registered.
nbfiles
specifies the number of files in the array files.
files
is a pointer to an array of lfc_filereg structures provided by the application.

struct lfc_filereg {
        char            *lfn;
        char            *guid;
        mode_t          mode;
        u_signed64      size;
        char            *csumtype;
        char            *csumvalue;
        char            *server;
        char            *sfn;
};
nbstatuses
will be set to the number of replies in the array of statuses.
statuses
will be set to the address of an array of integer statuses allocated by the API. The client application is responsible for freeing the array when not needed anymore. Individual statuses are 0 if the operation was successful or set to the serrno value in case of error.
 

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

ENOENT
A component of lfn prefix does not exist or lfn is a null pathname.
E2BIG
Request too large (max 1 MB).
ENOMEM
Memory could not be allocated for marshalling the request or unmarshalling the reply.
EACCES
Search permission is denied on a component of the lfn prefix or the file does not exist and write permission on the parent directory is denied or write permission on the file itself is denied.
EFAULT
files, nbstatuses or statuses is a NULL pointer.
EEXIST
The sfn exists already.
ENOTDIR
A component of lfn prefix is not a directory.
EISDIR
The lfn exists already and is not a regular file.
EINVAL
nbfiles is not strictly positive, the length of one of the guids exceeds CA_MAXGUIDLEN or the length of server exceeds CA_MAXHOSTNAMELEN.
ENOSPC
The name server database is full.
ENAMETOOLONG
The length of lfn exceeds CA_MAXPATHLEN or the length of an lfn component exceeds CA_MAXNAMELEN or the length of sfn exceeds CA_MAXSFNLEN.
SENOSSERV
Service unknown.
SEINTERNAL
Database error.
SECOMERR
Communication error.
ENSNACT
Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
