4.1.7 IDL_DRSFinishDemotion (Opnum 27)

The IDL_DRSFinishDemotion method either performs one or more steps toward the complete removal of a DC from an AD LDS forest, or it undoes the effects of the first phase of removal (performed by IDL_DRSInitDemotion). This method is supported by AD LDS only.

   [in, ref] DRS_HANDLE hDrs,
   [in] DWORD dwInVersion,
   [in, ref, switch_is(dwInVersion)] 
   [out, ref] DWORD* pdwOutVersion,
   [out, ref, switch_is(*pdwOutVersion)] 

hDrs: The RPC context handle returned by the IDL_DRSBind method.

dwInVersion: The version of the request message.

pmsgIn: A pointer to the request message.

pdwOutVersion: A pointer to the version of the response message.

pmsgOut: A pointer to the response message.

Return Values: 0 if successful, otherwise a Windows error code.
