The CLUSCTL_NODE_VALIDATE_COMMON_PROPERTIES node control code confirms that the supplied values for the common properties, as specified in section, of the designated node are within the operating limits imposed by the cluster.

The common properties of a node are the part of the node's non-volatile configuration data that is maintained in the cluster state and whose schema is defined by the server.

The client MUST provide one or more common 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_NODE_VALIDATE_COMMON_PROPERTIES node control code request if its protocol server state is read-only, and the server MUST accept the request for processing if it is in the read/write state, as specified in section 3.1.1.
