RPC_C_OPT_COOKIE_AUTH_DESCRIPTOR structure (rpcdcep.h)

The RPC_C_OPT_COOKIE_AUTH_DESCRIPTOR structure contains a cookie that is inserted into the header of RPC/HTTP traffic. This cookie can be used for authentication or for load balancing. When used for authentication, RPC_S_COOKIE_AUTH_FAILED is returned from an RPC call if cookie authentication fails. There are no specific error messages when used for load balancing.

Syntax
