Hello Tim, we will update MS-ERREF to have the following details.

ERROR_DS_DRA_RECYCLED_TARGET                       The replication operation failed because the target object referred by a link value is recycled.

This resolves your question #2 below.

Also just for information, ERROR_DS_DRA_RECYCLED_TARGET is seen documented at System Error Codes (8200-8999).

Subject: [REG:117060115827644] Re: 117060115827644 Question about DRS client behaviour with linked attributes

Hi Sreekanth,

Thanks for the link. I'd already seen that article (or one very similar), but it does provide a lot of useful information about replication.

The Docs issues I mentioned in the conference call are as follows:

1). A fortnight ago, I raised a minor issue with MS-DRSR ProcessLinkValue(). i.e. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd207759.aspx

In the following block of code that checks the link target, it looks like it's missing a null check for targetObject.

targetObject = GetDSNameFromAttrVal(replValinf.attrTyp, replValInf.pAval)
if ((IsRecycleBinEnabled() and targetObject!isRecycled) or
    (not IsRecycleBinEnabled() and targetObject!isDeleted)) then
    if (DRS_GET_TGT in ulMoreFlags) then
        /* nothing to do */
        return 0

Presumably it should also return ERROR_DS_DRA_RECYCLED_TARGET if targetObject is null, as this is what triggers the use of the DRS_GET_TGT flag.

2). Related to this, the error code used here isn't documented, i.e. it isn't listed on https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc231199.aspx

I think it should be something like:


Thanks for your help.
