[MS-WCCE] Incorrect "CR_PROP_TEMPLATES" property description section RRS feed

  • Question

  • In [MS-WCCE], § description for CR_PROP_TEMPLATES property is incorrect. Specifically:

    > The server MUST return an empty CERTTRANSBLOB (section structure.

    Really? In fact, it returns a null-terminated string with template name/OID pairs separated with "\n" character, e.g.

  • Hi Vadims:

    Thanks for bring this to our attention. The behavior is as you described when there exist one or more template(s). In case of no template, you will receive an empty string.

    In a future release of MS-WCCE, the document will be modified along the lines mentioned above.

    Please let me know if it does not answer your question.
