- add broader smbtorture tests (maybe also win32 tests)
- fix invalid winreg IDL where [size_is(*unique_ptr)] and [length_is(*unique_ptr)] (also in pidl if possible)
- avoid unique NULL pointer derref in various winreg server calls
- handle SEC_FLAG_MAXIMUM_ALLOWED request access_mask mapping
- handle sec_initial_uid() == geteuid() root free-pass
- think about avoiding data normalisation
- merge underlying registry implementations from s3 and s4 (possibly by first using the s3 backend code as one backend in the s4 registry library)
- remove remaining calls to reg_dispatcher calls (store_reg_key, fetch_reg_keys etc) from the code (e.g. services/services_db.c) so that only reg_api.c is used to locally access the registry, and make reg_dispatcher and friends private (obnox)
- create an api layer that uses the winreg rpc_client stubs with a local rpc binding (rpc_pipe_open_internal()) to call out directly to the server code. this will unify the local and remote access to registry in the code. (obnox)
The MSDN docs describes REG_LINK as: "A null-terminated Unicode string that contains the target path of a symbolic link that was created by calling the RegCreateKeyEx function with REG_OPTION_CREATE_LINK."
Here’s the part that is not documented:
You have to set a special value called "SymbolicLinkValue" of type REG_LINK in the symbolic link key. The data associated with this special value is the target registry key to link to. The target registry key needs to be in kernel-mode registry syntax.
User-mode keys converted to kernel-mode:
* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE is converted to \\registry\machine. * HKEY_USERS is converted to \\registry\user. * HKEY_CURRENT_USER is converted to \\registry\user\user_sid, where user_sid is the Security ID associated with the user. * HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT is converted to \\registry\machine\software\classes.
