WindowsIdentity Constructor (String)
Initializes a new instance of the WindowsIdentity class for the user represented by the specified User Principal Name (UPN).
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Windows returned the Windows NT status code STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED.
There is insufficient memory available.
The caller does not have the correct permissions.
The computer is not attached to a Windows 2003 or later domain.
The computer is not running Windows 2003 or later.
The user is not a member of the domain the computer is attached to.
A UPN has the format email@example.com, in other words, an email address. The UPN identified in sUserPrincipalName is used to retrieve a token for that user through the Win32 API LsaLogonUser function. In turn that token is used to identify the user. An exception might be returned due to the inability to log on using the supplied UPN.
This constructor is intended for use on computers joined only to Windows Server 2003 domains. An exception is thrown for other domain types. This restriction is because the constructor uses the KERB_S4U_LOGON structure.
Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core Role not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core Role supported with SP1 or later; Itanium not supported)
