The CLUSCTL_RESOURCE_GET_PRIVATE_PROPERTY_FMTS resource control code SHOULD<145> retrieve the name and data format of each private property, as specified in section, of the designated resource.

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

After successful completion of this method, the server MUST write a PROPERTY_LIST structure, as specified in section, to the buffer that is designated by lpOutBuffer for the designated resource. If the lpOutBuffer buffer is not large enough to accommodate the string, error 0x000000EA (ERROR_MORE_DATA) MUST be returned.

The server SHOULD accept a CLUSCTL_RESOURCE_GET_PRIVATE_PROPERTY_FMTS 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.
