Creates a new 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_ADD, // this control code
                        lpInBuffer,                            // input buffer: property list
                        nInBufferSize,                         // input buffer size
                        lpOutBuffer,                           // output buffer (not used)
                        cbOutBufferSize,                       // output buffer size (not used)
                        lpcbBytesReturned );                   // returned data size (not used)
