[1mNAME[0m
      lfc_chown  - change owner and group of a LFC directory/file in the name
      server

[1mSYNOPSIS[0m
      [1m#include <sys/types.h>[0m
      [1m#include "lfc_api.h"[0m

      [1mint lfc_chown (const char *[4m[22mpath[24m[1m, uid_t [4m[22mnew_uid[24m[1m, gid_t [4m[22mnew_gid[24m[1m)[0m

      [1mint lfc_lchown (const char *[4m[22mpath[24m[1m, uid_t [4m[22mnew_uid[24m[1m, gid_t [4m[22mnew_gid[24m[1m)[0m

[1mDESCRIPTION[0m
      [1mlfc_chown [22msets the owner and the group of a LFC directory/file  in  the
      name  server to the numeric values in [4mowner[24m and [4mgroup[24m respectively.  If
      [4mowner[24m or [4mgroup[24m is specified as -1, [1mlfc_chown() [22mdoes not change the cor-
      responding ID of the file.

      [1mlfc_lchown [22mis identical to [1mlfc_chown [22mexcept for symbolic links: it does
      not follow the link but changes the ownership of the link itself.

      [4mpath[24m   specifies the logical  pathname  relative  to  the  current  LFC
             directory or the full LFC pathname.

      To  change  the  owner  ID,  if the group ID does not change and if the
      caller and the new owner ID belong to that group,  GRP_ADMIN  privilege
      is  needed,  otherwise the caller must have ADMIN privilege in the Cupv
      database.  To change the group ID, the effective user ID of the process
      must  match  the  owner ID of the file and the new group must be in the
      list of groups the caller belong to or the caller must have ADMIN priv-
      ilege in the Cupv database.

[1mRETURN VALUE[0m
      This  routine  returns  0  if the operation was successful or -1 if the
      operation failed. In the latter case, [1mserrno [22mis set appropriately.

[1mERRORS[0m
      [1mEPERM        [22mThe effective user ID does not match the owner of the file
                   and  the  caller does not have ADMIN privilege in the Cupv
                   database.

      [1mENOENT       [22mThe named file/directory does not exist or is a null path-
                   name.

      [1mEACCES       [22mSearch  permission  is  denied  on a component of the [4mpath[0m
                   prefix.

      [1mEFAULT       [4m[22mpath[24m is a NULL pointer.

      [1mENOTDIR      [22mA component of [4mpath[24m prefix is not a directory.

      [1mEINVAL       [4m[22mnew_uid[24m or [4mnew_gid[24m is invalid.

      [1mENAMETOOLONG [22mThe length of [4mpath[24m exceeds [1mCA_MAXPATHLEN [22mor the length  of
                   a [4mpath[24m component exceeds [1mCA_MAXNAMELEN[22m.

      [1mSENOSHOST    [22mHost unknown.

      [1mSENOSSERV    [22mService unknown.

      [1mSECOMERR     [22mCommunication error.

      [1mENSNACT      [22mName server is not running or is being shutdown.
