SCF_ERROR(3SCF) Service Configuration Facility Library Functions


NAME


scf_error, scf_strerror - error interface to Service Configuration
Facility

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -lscf [ library... ]
#include <libscf.h>

scf_error_t scf_error(void);


const char *scf_strerror(scf_error_t error);


DESCRIPTION


The scf_error() function returns the current libscf(3LIB) error value for
the current thread. If the immediately previous call to a libscf function
failed, the error value will reflect the reason for that failure.


The scf_strerror() function takes an error code previously returned by
scf_error() and returns a human-readable, localized description of the
error.


The error values are as follows:

SCF_ERROR_BACKEND_ACCESS

The storage mechanism that the repository server (svc.configd(1M))
chose for the operation denied access.


SCF_ERROR_BACKEND_READONLY

The storage mechanism that the repository server (svc.configd) chose
for the operation is read-only. For the local filesystem storage
mechanism (currently /etc/svc/repository.db), this usually occurs
because the filesystem that contains it is mounted read-only. See
mount(1M)


SCF_ERROR_CONNECTION_BROKEN

The connection to repository is broken.


SCF_ERROR_CONSTRAINT_VIOLATED

A required constraint was not met.


SCF_ERROR_DELETED

Object was deleted.


SCF_ERROR_EXISTS

The object already exists.


SCF_ERROR_HANDLE_DESTROYED

An object was bound to a destroyed handle.


SCF_ERROR_HANDLE_MISMATCH

Objects from different SCF handles were used.


SCF_ERROR_IN_USE

The object is currently in use.


SCF_ERROR_INTERNAL

An internal error occurred.


SCF_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT

An argument is invalid.


SCF_ERROR_NO_MEMORY

No memory is available.


SCF_ERROR_NO_RESOURCES

The repository server is out of resources.


SCF_ERROR_NO_SERVER

The repository server is unavailable.


SCF_ERROR_NONE

No error occurred.


SCF_ERROR_NOT_BOUND

The handle is not bound.


SCF_ERROR_NOT_FOUND

Nothing of that name was found.


SCF_ERROR_NOT_SET

Cannot use unset value.


SCF_ERROR_PERMISSION_DENIED

The user lacks sufficient authority to conduct the requested
operation. See smf_security(5).


SCF_ERROR_TYPE_MISMATCH

The type does not match value.


SCF_ERROR_VERSION_MISMATCH

The SCF version is incompatible.


RETURN VALUES


The scf_error() function returns SCF_ERROR_NONE if there have been no
calls from libscf functions from the current thread. The return value is
undefined if the immediately previous call to a libscf function did not
fail.
