MORE INFORMATION

With MUTUAL_AUTH, the communicating parties must authenticate their identities to each other. The SSPI client requests for ISC_REQ_MUTUAL_AUTH in the InitializeSecurityContext API and the server requests for ASC_REQ_MUTUAL_AUTH in the AcceptSecurityContext API. On return, the SSPI client indicates that ISC_RET_MUTUAL_AUTH was achieved. But the server indicates that ISC_RET_MUTUAL_AUTH was not achieved, even though mutual authentication succeeded.
