The ldap_modrdn() and ldap_modrdn_s() routines perform an LDAP modify
RDN operation. They both take dn, the DN of the entry whose RDN is
to be changed, and newrdn, the new RDN to give the entry. The old
RDN of the entry is never kept as an attribute of the entry.
ldap_modrdn() is asynchronous, returning the message id of the
operation it initiates. ldap_modrdn_s() is synchronous, returning
the LDAP error code indicating the success or failure of the
operation. Use of these routines is deprecated. Use the versions
described below instead.
The ldap_modrdn2() and ldap_modrdn2_s() routines also perform an LDAP
modify RDN operation, taking the same parameters as above. In
addition, they both take the deleteoldrdn parameter which is used as
a boolean value to indicate whether the old RDN values should be
deleted from the entry or not.
The synchronous (_s) versions of these routines return an LDAP error
code, either LDAP_SUCCESS or an error if there was trouble. The
asynchronous versions return -1 in case of trouble, setting the
ld_errno field of ld. See ldap_error(3) for more details.
