Group Control Codes

The Failover Cluster API defines the following external control codes for groups (there are no internal control codes defined for groups):

Group control codes use the CLUS_OBJECT_GROUP value of the CLUSTER_CONTROL_OBJECT enumeration to indicate that the control code applies to cluster groups. For more information about control codes, see Control Code Architecture.

Group control codes are enumerated by the CLUSCTL_GROUP_CODES enumeration.
