#include <lber.h>
#include <ldap.h>

int ldap_modrdn(LDAP *ld, const char *dn, const char *newrdn);

int ldap_modrdn_s(LDAP *ld, const char *dn, const char *newrdn, int deleteoldrdn);

int ldap_modrdn2(LDAP *ld, const char *dn, const char *newrdn, int deleteoldrdn);

int ldap_modrdn2_s(LDAP *ld, const char *dn, const char *newrdn, int deleteoldrdn);

int ldap_rename(LDAP *ld, const char *dn, const char *newrdn, const char *newparent, int deleteoldrdn, LDAPControl **serverctrls, LDAPControl **clientctrls, int *msgidp);

int ldap_rename_s(LDAP *ld, const char *dn, const char *newrdn, const char *newparent, const int deleteoldrdn, LDAPControl **serverctrls, LDAPControl **clientctrls);  

DESCRIPTION

The ldap_modrdn() and ldap_modrdn_s() functions perform an LDAP modify RDN (Relative Distinguished Name) operation. They both take dn, the DN (Distinguished Name) of the entry whose RDN is to be changed, and newrdn, the new RDN, to give the entry. The old RDN of the entry is never kept as an attribute of the entry. ldap_modrdn() is asynchronous. It return the message id of the operation it initiates. ldap_modrdn_s() is synchronous. It returns the LDAP error code that indicates the success or failure of the operation.

The ldap_modrdn2() and ldap_modrdn2_s() functions also perform an LDAP modify RDN operation. They take the same parameters as above. In addition, they both take the deleteoldrdn parameter ,which is used as a boolean value to indicate whether or not the old RDN values should be deleted from the entry.

The ldap_rename(), ldap_rename_s() routines are used to change the name, that is, the RDN of an entry. These routines deprecate the ldap_modrdn() and ldap_modrdn_s() routines, as well as ldap_modrdn2() and ldap_modrdn2_s().

The ldap_rename() and ldap_rename_s() functions both support LDAPv3 server controls and client controls.  

ERRORS

The synchronous (_s) versions of these functions return an LDAP error code, either LDAP_SUCCESS or an error. See ldap_error(3LDAP).

The asynchronous versions return -1 in the event of an error, setting the ld_errno field of ld. See ldap_error(3LDAP) for more details. Use ldap_result(3LDAP) to determine a particular unsuccessful result.
