This function processes the server_string returned in the result_string parameter of krb5_change_password() , krb5_set_password() , and related functions, and returns a displayable string. If server_string contains Active Directory structured policy information, it will be converted into human-readable text.

Use krb5_free_string() to free message_out when it is no longer needed.
