Function : Database
NSFDbDeleteExtended - Delete a database.

#include <nsfdb.h>

    cost char far *PathName,
    DHANDLE  hNameList);
Description :

This function deletes a specified Domino database using the path specification provided and allows for a NAMES_LIST structure UserName to provide authentication for trusted servers.

Parameters : Input : PathName - The address of a text buffer containing a database name or alternately, a full network path specification to the database built with OSPathNetConstruct. The database file name should be a null-terminated string.

hNameList - May be NULLHANDLE or a HANDLE to a NAMES_LIST structure that contains a UserName that is used to provide authentication for trusted servers. This causes the UserName's ACL permissions in the database to be enforced. Please see NSFBuildNamesList for more information on building a NAMES_LIST structure.

Output : (routine) - Return status from this call -- indicates either success or what the error is. The return codes include:

NOERROR - database successfully deleted. ERR_NOACCESS - You are not authorized to perform that operation ERR_NOEXIST - File does not exist ERR_DRIVE_NOT_READY - Drive is not ready ERR_LOCK - File cannot be shared while in use by another process ERR_IOERROR - I/O data error ERR_xxx - Errors returned by lower level functions. 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.
