The audit rule to remove.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the audit rule was successfully removed; otherwise, false.

Audit removal is accomplished by using a complex algorithm that might add audit control rules in addition to removing them.

This method fails to remove the audit rule and returns false if the inheritance rules associated with the audit rule are too complex for the removal algorithm to succeed.
