The CLUSCTL_NODE_GET_FLAGS node control code retrieves the flags associated with the designated node. Flags are used to identify the specific attributes and/or capabilities that are provided by the node.

After the successful completion of this method, the server MUST write a CLUS_FLAGS enumeration (section to the buffer that is designated by lpOutBuffer. If the node has multiple attributes and capabilities, the server MUST indicate each attribute or capability by setting a value for each attribute or capability.

The server SHOULD accept a CLUSCTL_NODE_GET_FLAGS 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.
