The CLUSCTL_CLUSTER_GET_COMMON_PROPERTIES cluster control code retrieves the common properties, as specified in section, of the designated cluster.

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

After successful completion of this method, the server MUST write a property list, as specified in section, to the buffer that is designated by lpOutBuffer containing one or more names and values of the writable common properties for the designated cluster. 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_CLUSTER_GET_COMMON_PROPERTIES cluster 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.
