Remarks

An application calls the RpcMgmtInqServerPrincName function to obtain the principal name of a server that is registered for a specified authentication service.

The RPC run-time library allocates memory for the string returned in ServerPrincName. The application is responsible for calling the RpcStringFree function to release the memory used by this function.

The server must be listening for remote procedure calls for this function to succeed. If the server is not listening, the function fails.
