The CLUSCTL_NODE_GET_COMMON_PROPERTIES node control code retrieves the common properties, as specified in section, of the designated node.

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.

After successful completion of this method, the server MUST write a PROPERTY_LIST structure (section to the buffer that is designated by lpOutBuffer. This PROPERTY_LIST structure MUST contain one or more names and values of the writable common properties for the designated node. 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_NODE_GET_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.
