Retrieves the read/write private properties for a resource. Applications use this control code as a ClusterResourceControl parameter, and resource DLLs receive the control code as a ResourceControl parameter.

  hResource,                                         // resource handle
  hHostNode,                                         // optional host node
  CLUSCTL_RESOURCE_GET_PRIVATE_PROPERTIES,           // this control code
  NULL,                                              // input buffer (not used)
  0,                                                 // input buffer size (not used)
  lpOutBuffer,                                       // output buffer: property list
  cbOutBufferSize,                                   // allocated buffer size (bytes)
  lpcbBytesReturned );                               // actual size of resulting data (bytes)


The following control code function and DLL support parameters are specific to this control code. For complete parameter descriptions, see ClusterResourceControl or ResourceControl.


On a successful return, points to a property list containing the resource's read/write private properties

Return value

ClusterResourceControl returns one of the following values:


The operation was successful. The lpcbBytesReturned parameter points to the actual size of the returned data.


The output buffer pointed to by lpOutBuffer was not large enough to hold the data resulting from the operation. The lpcbBytesReturned parameter points to the size required for the output buffer.

System error code

The operation failed. The value of lpcbBytesReturned is unreliable.

Implementations of ResourceControl can return the above values or the following value:


Requests that the Resource Monitor perform default processing (if any) for the control code addition to processing supplied by the DLL (if any).


Do not use the CLUSCTL_RESOURCE_GET_PRIVATE_PROPERTIES control code in any resource DLL entry point function. This control code can safely be called from a worker thread. For more information, see Function Calls to Avoid in Resource DLLs.

ClusAPI.h defines the 32 bits of CLUSCTL_RESOURCE_GET_PRIVATE_PROPERTIES as follows (for more information, see Control Code Architecture).

Component Bit location Value
Object code 24 31 CLUS_OBJECT_RESOURCE (0x1)
Global bit 23 CLUS_NOT_GLOBAL (0x0)
Modify bit 22 CLUS_NO_MODIFY (0x0)
User bit 21 CLCTL_CLUSTER_BASE (0x0)
Type bit 20 External (0x0)
Operation code 0 23 CLCTL_GET_PRIVATE_PROPERTIES (0x81)
Access code 0 1 CLUS_ACCESS_READ (0x1)

Resource DLL Support

Required. Always support CLUSCTL_RESOURCE_GET_PRIVATE_PROPERTIES in your implementation of ResourceControl. Return a property list that includes the names and data values for all of the resource-specific read/write private properties. Remember to terminate the list with CLUSPROP_SYNTAX_ENDMARK. For more information on working with property lists, see Creating Property Lists.

As a general guideline, the Resource Monitor should handle all of the control codes for common properties, while your DLL should handle all control codes for private properties.

For more information on the ResourceControl entry point function, see Implementing ResourceControl.
