Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.2 Developer's Guide


This function writes the specified error message to the server error log in synchronous fashion. This function does not return until the log message has been flushed to disk, thus blocking the server for the duration of the write operation. By default, the error log is $INSTANCE_PATH/logs/errors.

Unlike slapi_log_info_ex(), this function cannot be turned off.

Error messages typically concern fatal errors. For warnings, use slapi_log_warning_ex(). For informational log messages, use slapi_log_info_ex().
