There are four restrictions on the usage of the library functions
RENAME when they are used with remote name notation:
- RENAME does not support file copies or renames from client systems to file servers, or vice versa. In other words, renames
are not supported across machines.
- For a rename, remote name notation is not allowed on the destination file parameter.
- When copies or renames are executed on a file server, the location of the copied or renamed file is determined by the relative
or absolute pathnames of the parameter values.
- FILE_PREFIX and name aliases are not used to find files named in the function parameters.
