CLUSCTL_NODE_VALIDATE_COMMON_PROPERTIES control code

Verifies that a property list contains valid node property names and values and that the list is properly formatted. Applications use this control code as a ClusterNodeControl parameter.


ClusterNodeControl( hNode,                                   // node handle
                    hHostNode,                               // optional host node
                    CLUSCTL_NODE_VALIDATE_COMMON_PROPERTIES, // this control code
                    lpInBuffer,                              // input buffer: property list
                    cbInBufferSize,                          // allocated buffer size (bytes)
                    NULL,                                    // output buffer (not used)
                    0,                                       // output buffer size (not used)
                    NULL );                                  // actual size of resulting data (not used)

Parameters

The following control code function parameter is specific to this control code. For complete parameter descriptions, see ClusterNodeControl.

lpInBuffer

Pass a pointer to a property list containing one or more read/write common node properties.

Return value

ClusterNodeControl returns one of the following values.

ERROR_SUCCESS

0

The operation completed successfully. The property list is correctly formatted and contains valid data values.

ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER

122 (0x7A)

The data area passed to a system call is too small. The actual size of the property list buffer as determined by the Cluster service is larger than the size specified in the cbInBufferSize parameter.

ERROR_INVALID_DATA

13 (0xD)

The data is invalid. The property list is either formatted incorrectly or contains invalid data, such as an out-of-range value.

ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER

87 (0x57)

The parameter is incorrect.

RPC_X_BAD_STUB_DATA

1783 (0x6F7)

The stub received bad data. The lpInBuffer parameter is NULL.

System error code

If any other value is returned, then the operation failed.

Remarks

The CLUSCTL_NODE_VALIDATE_COMMON_PROPERTIES control code only validates read/write node common properties. Property lists containing private or read-only properties cause validation to fail.

For information on working with property lists, see Using Property Lists.
