  unsigned char *EntryName

Remarks

Management applications use the RpcNsMgmtEntryDelete function only when an entry is no longer needed—for example, when a server is being permanently removed from service.

Because name-service databases are designed to be relatively stable, frequent use of RpcNsMgmtEntryDelete in client or server applications can result in performance problems. Creating and deleting entries in client or server applications causes the name-service database to repeatedly remove and replace the same entry. This can lead to performance problems in replicated name-service databases.
