3.1.4.21 ElfrCloseEL (Opnum 2)

The ElfrCloseEL (Opnum 2) method instructs the server to close a handle to the event log, freeing resources on the server that maintained an association between the handle and the corresponding event log. This handle MUST have been obtained via the ElfrOpenELW (section 3.1.4.3) method, the ElfrOpenELA (section 3.1.4.4) method, the ElfrOpenBELW (section 3.1.4.1) method, or the ElfrOpenBELA (section 3.1.4.2) method.

 NTSTATUS ElfrCloseEL(
   [in, out] IELF_HANDLE* LogHandle
 );

LogHandle: Handle to an event log. This parameter is a server context handle, as specified in section 2.2.6.

Return Values: The method MUST return STATUS_SUCCESS (0x00000000) on success; otherwise, it MUST return an implementation-based, nonzero NTSTATUS value specified in [MS-ERREF].

In response to this request from the client, the server MUST first check that the handle is valid. The server MUST fail the operation with the error STATUS_INVALID_HANDLE (0xC0000008) if the handle is invalid. The server SHOULD make sure that the handle has come from the ElfrOpenELW (section 3.1.4.3) method, the ElfrOpenELA (section 3.1.4.4) method, the ElfrOpenBELW (section 3.1.4.1) method, or the ElfrOpenBELA (section 3.1.4.2) method.<37>

If the handle is valid, the server MUST free the resources taken by this handle in the server.<38>
