dpns_registerfiles - register list of files with their corresponding replica entry


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

int dpns_registerfiles (int nbfiles, struct dpns_filereg *files, int *nbstatuses, int **statuses)


dpns_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.

specifies the number of files in the array files.
is a pointer to an array of dpns_filereg structures provided by the application.

struct dpns_filereg {
	char		*lfn;
	char		*guid;
	mode_t		mode;
	u_signed64	size;
	char		*csumtype;
	char		*csumvalue;
	char		*server;
	char		*sfn;
will be set to the number of replies in the array of 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.


This routine returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation failed. In the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.


A component of lfn prefix does not exist or lfn is a null pathname.
Request too large (max 1 MB).
Memory could not be allocated for marshalling the request or unmarshalling the reply.
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.
files, nbstatuses or statuses is a NULL pointer.
The sfn exists already.
A component of lfn prefix is not a directory.
The lfn exists already and is not a regular file.
nbfiles is not strictly positive, the length of one of the guids exceeds CA_MAXGUIDLEN or the length of server exceeds CA_MAXHOSTNAMELEN or lfn and guid are both given and they point at a different file.
The name server database is full.
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.
Service unknown.
Database error.
Communication error.
Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
