NSFDB2GetDbInfoValidity - Validate NSFDB2 database information.

#include <nsfdb.h>

    DWORD  szSchema,
    char *tableSpace,
    DWORD  szTableSpace,

Description :

This function returns the schema and table space that Domino believes the specified NSFDB2 database exists in. It also returns a status of whether or not the schema and table space exists.

Parameters : Input : filePath - The file name of the NSFDB2 database.

szSchema - The size of the buffer allocated for Schema.

szTableSpace - The size of the buffer allocated for tableSpace.

szActualTableSpace - The size of the buffer allocated for actualTableSpace.

flags - (Reserved for future use.) Must be 0.

Output : (routine) - Return status from this call:

NOERROR - Successful.

ERR_DB2NSF_CLI_ERROR - Internal DB2/CLI error.

ERR_NOT_FOUND - NSFDB2 information could not be found for filePath

ERR_DB2NSF_NOT_ENABLED_FOR_DB2 - The Domino server is not enabled for DB2.

ERR_xxx - Errors returned by lower level functions: (memory management, file operations, network errors, etc.). There are so many possible causes, that it is best to use the code in a call to OSLoadString and display/log the error for the user as your default error handling.

Schema - The name of the DB2 schema containing the tables for the NSFDB2 db.

tableSpace - The name of the table space as recorded in Domino's CATALOG table.

actualTableSpace - The real container location (table space) of Schema.NSFNOTE

schemaExists - True if the Schema specified in Domino's CATALOG table exists.

tsExists - True if the table space referenced in Domino's CATALOG table exists.

tsMismatch - True if the table space actually containing Schema.NSFNOTE differs from what Domino's CATALOG table has listed for filePath. This will only happen with DBA intervention or through backup/restore scenarios (e.g. renaming a table space from the DB2 Control Center application)
