Value of error code 9 in sendmsg function

While running ldapsearch utility in Linux, my application fails in the call to "sendmsg" function and returns an error code 9. Does someone know what error code 9 represents?

Is 9 the errno value, or the return code from the sendmsg function?
Is there no error message?

sendmsg() should return the number of characters it sent, if a positive value.
EBADF, a bad file descriptor would correspond to an errno of 9, if that's the sort of error code you mean,
and if the code isn't from a different protocol layer.

Hi kakaka, the return value of sendmsg function is -1 and 9 is the errno value.
