NAME

lfc_rename - rename a LFC file or directory in the name server  

SYNOPSIS

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

int lfc_rename (const char *oldpath, const char *newpath)  

DESCRIPTION

lfc_rename renames a LFC file or directory in the name server.

oldpath and newpath must be of the same type, i.e. both regular files or both directories.

If newpath exists already, it will be removed before the rename takes place. If newpath is a directory, it must be empty.

When renaming a directory, newpath must not be a descendant of oldpath, i.e. newpath must not contain a path prefix that names oldpath.

Write permission is required on both parents. If oldpath is a directory, write permission is required on it and if newpath is an existing directory, write permission is also required on it.

If any of the parents has the sticky bit S_ISVTX set, either

the effective user ID of the requestor must match the owner ID of the file or

the effective user ID of the requestor must match the owner ID of the directory or

the file must be writable by the requestor or

the requestor must have ADMIN privilege in the Cupv database.

 

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.
