Subject: ReplicaSourceNodeName in MS-SAMR

Hi dochelp team,

under MS-SAMR we've found the following information:
> ReplicaSourceNodeName: A counted Unicode string of type 
> RPC_UNICODE_STRING that represents a replication partner.
We on the s4 side do not implement it correctly since there are some questions open.
What I've discovered is that Windows returns blank ("") if no replication partners are available. If at least one is availabe it seems to be filled in: but how is this done?

We need to know: output format (DNS or netbios), circumstances, which replication partner if there exist more than one.
