DFS_INFO_7 structure (lmdfs.h)

Contains information about a DFS namespace. This structure contains the version GUID for the metadata for the namespace.

This information level is available to DFS roots only.


typedef struct _DFS_INFO_7 {
  GUID GenerationGuid;



The value of this GUID changes each time the DFS metadata is changed.


This structure is used to detect when the metadata of a DFS namespace has changed. It is currently supported only for domain-based DFS namespace servers.

If a DFS namespace server does not support generation GUIDs, the GUID value returned by NetDfsGetInfo contains a null GUID (all zeros). This structure cannot be used with NetDfsGetClientInfo.
