Function : Database
NSFDB2ListNSFDB2Databases - Provides a list of all NSFDB2 databases.

#include <nsfdb.h>

    MEMHANDLE *hDbList,
    void far **pDbList,
    const char far *tablespaceName);
Description :

Provides a list of all NSFDB2 databases. An NSFDB2 database is a database that you can work with in DB2 and in Notes/Domino.

Parameters : Input :

tablespaceName - (optional): Limits results to NSFDB2 databases in this tablespace. Passing NULL will result in a list of all NSFDB2 databases served by Domino.

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

NOERROR - Successful.

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.

hDbList - Address of a HANDLE in which the handle to the Domino memory object containing the newly created text LIST is returned. The list will contain a file path of all NSFDB2 databases served by Domino. Upon successful return, the list memory object is locked and a pointer to the object is returned in pDbList. Since the object is returned locked, you must explicitly unlock the object (OSUnlockObject) before attempting to free it (OSMemFree). Use ListGetText(*pDbList, FALSE, EntryNumber, ....) to obtain each NSFDB2 database file path.

pDbList - Pointer to the newly created list of bad link file names.

Sample Usage :

        MEMHANDLE      hDbList;
 void   far  *pDbList;
 STATUS      rc;
 char        *pEntry;
 WORD        len;

 rc = NSFDB2ListNSFDB2Databases(&hDbList, &pDbList, NULL);
 /* get the first NSFDB2 database */
 for (int x=0; x < ListGetNumEntries(hDbList, FALSE); x++)

    if ( (ListGetText(pDbList, FALSE, x, *pEntry, &len)) == NOERROR)
     printf("%s\n", )
