ApiFailResource (Opnum 16)

(Protocol Version 3) The ApiFailResource method instructs the cluster to treat the designated resource as having failed the criteria that determine whether the resource is functioning correctly. The cluster MAY choose to call recovery methods as specified in section

The server MUST accept an ApiFailResource request for processing only if it is in the read/write state, as specified in section 3.1.1.

The server MUST require that the access level associated with the hResource context handle is "All" (section 3.1.4).

 error_status_t ApiFailResource(
   [in] HRES_RPC hResource,
   [out] error_status_t *rpc_status

hResource: An HRES_RPC context handle that was obtained in a previous ApiOpenResource, ApiOpenResourceEx, or ApiCreateResource method call.

rpc_status: A 32-bit integer used to indicate success or failure. The RPC runtime MUST indicate, by writing to this parameter, whether it succeeded in executing this method on the server. The encoding of the value passed in this parameter MUST conform to encoding for  comm_status and fault_status, as specified in Appendix E of [C706].

Return value/code







The data that is pointed to by the hResource parameter does not represent a valid HRES_RPC context handle.



The resource represented by the hResource parameter no longer exists in the nonvolatile cluster state.



The resource is not in the ClusterResourceOnline, ClusterResourceOnlinePending, or ClusterResourceOfflinePending states.

For any other condition, the server MUST set Status to a value that is not one of the values listed in the preceding table. The client MUST treat all values not listed in the preceding table the same, except as specified in section
