The CLUSCTL_RESOURCE_VALIDATE_PRIVATE_PROPERTIES resource control code confirms that the supplied values for the private properties, as specified in section, of the designated resource are within the operating limits imposed by the server.

The private properties of a resource are the part of the non-volatile configuration data of the resource that is maintained in the cluster state and whose schema is defined by the resource type of the resource.

The client MUST provide one or more private property names and their associated values by using the format, as specified in section, in the buffer that is designated by lpInBuffer.

After successful completion of the method, the server SHOULD NOT write any data to the buffer that is designated by lpOutBuffer.

The server SHOULD accept a CLUSCTL_RESOURCE_VALIDATE_PRIVATE_PROPERTIES resource control code request if its protocol server state is read-only and MUST accept the request for processing if it is in the read/write state, as specified in section 3.1.1.
