Directory Services


The IDsAdminNotifyHandler interface is implemented by a Microsoft® Active Directory® administrative notification handler. This interface is used by the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in to notify registered handlers when certain events, such as deleting or renaming an object, occur. The snap-in creates an instance of this object by calling CoCreateInstance with the CLSID of the extension.

The IDsAdminNotifyHandler interface inherits the methods of the standard COM interface IUnknown.
