[The CLUSCTL_RESOURCE_FILESERVER_SHARE_DEL control code is available for use in the operating systems specified in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions.]

Deletes a file share on a physical disk resource. Applications use this control code as a parameter to the ClusterResourceControl function.

ClusterResourceControl( hResource,                              // cluster handle
                        hHostNode,                             // optional node handle
                        CLUSCTL_RESOURCE_FILESERVER_SHARE_DEL, // control code
                        lpInBuffer,                            // input buffer: file share name
                        nInBufferSize,                         // input buffer size
                        lpOutBuffer,                           // output buffer: (not used)
                        cbOutBufferSize,                       // output buffer size (not used)
                        lpcbBytesReturned );                   // returned data size (not used)
