Subject: MS_RRP: Question on Symbolic Links

Hello Dochelp Team,

my name is Andreas Schneider, I'm a PFIF subcontractor and Samba Team member.

Section of the MS-RRP document describes how to create, open and follow symbolic links.

The documentation doesn't describe how to delete these symbolic links. I've tried to open the key with REG_OPTION_OPEN_LINK and delete the value "SymbolicLinkValue" but it didn't work.

It looks like the target key needs to be saved in kernel mode as described


Is that true or are user and kernel mode valid now?

Best regards,
