DB_ENV->repmgr_site(DB_ENV *env, const char *host,
    u_int port, DB_SITE **sitep, u_int32_t flags);  

The DB_ENV->repmgr_site() method returns a DB_SITE handle that defines a site's network address. You use the DB_SITE handle to configure and manage a Replication Manager site.

This method allocates memory for the handle, returning a pointer to the structure in the memory to which sitep refers. To release the allocated memory and discard the handle, call the DB_SITE->close() method.

You must use the exact same host identification string and port number to refer to a given site throughout your application and on each of its sites.

The DB_ENV->repmgr_site() method may be called at any time after the environment handle has been created.

The DB_ENV->repmgr_site() method returns a non-zero error value on failure and 0 on success.



The site's host identification string, generally a TCP/IP host name. IPv6 and IPv4 addresses in numeric format are also accepted. If multiple addresses are defined for a host name, an IPv6 address is used whenever possible.


The port number on which the site is listening.


References memory into which a pointer to the allocated handle is copied.


This parameter is currently unused, and must be set to 0.
