DsFreePasswordCredentials function

The DsFreePasswordCredentials function frees memory allocated for a credentials structure by the DsMakePasswordCredentials function.

Syntax


VOID WINAPI DsFreePasswordCredentials(
  _In_ RPC_AUTH_IDENTITY_HANDLE AuthIdentity
);

Parameters

AuthIdentity [in]

Handle of the credential structure to be freed.

Return value

This function does not return a value.

Remarks

When the handle in AuthIdentity is passed to DsBindWithCred, DsUnbind must be called before freeing this handle. The normal sequence of events is:

  1. Call DsMakePasswordCredentials to obtain the credential handle.
  2. Call DsBindWithCred, passing the credential handle.
  3. Call DsUnbind when the RPC connection is no longer required.
  4. Call DsFreePasswordCredentials to free the credential handle.
