GetClusterResourceState function

Returns the current state of a resource. The PCLUSAPI_GET_CLUSTER_RESOURCE_STATE type defines a pointer to this function.

Syntax

CLUSTER_RESOURCE_STATE GetClusterResourceState(
  HRESOURCE hResource,
  LPWSTR    lpszNodeName,
  LPDWORD   lpcchNodeName,
  LPWSTR    lpszGroupName,
  LPDWORD   lpcchGroupName
);

Parameters

hResource

Handle specifying the resource for which state information should be returned.

lpszNodeName

Pointer to a buffer that receives the name of the specified resource's current owner node as a NULL-terminated Unicode string. Pass NULL if the node name is not required.

lpcchNodeName

Pointer to the size of the lpszNodeName buffer as a count of characters. This pointer cannot be NULL unless lpszNodeName is also NULL. On input, specifies the maximum number of characters the buffer can hold, including the terminating NULL. On output, specifies the number of characters in the resulting name, excluding the terminating NULL.

lpszGroupName

Pointer to a buffer that receives the name of the group that contains the specified resource. The name is returned as a NULL-terminated Unicode string. Pass NULL if the group name is not required.

lpcchGroupName

Pointer to the size of the lpszGroupName buffer as a count of characters. This pointer cannot be NULL unless lpszNodeName is also NULL. On input, specifies the maximum number of characters the buffer can hold, including the terminating NULL. On output, specifies the number of characters in the resulting name, excluding the terminating NULL.

ClusterResourceFailed
4
The resource has failed. This value will be returned if the resource reported a state of ClusterResourceFailed (4) or ClusterResourceCannotComeOnlineOnAnyNode (126).
ClusterResourcePending
128
