If the GetNtmsObjectAttribute function is called but the buffer is too small, the ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER error response is not returned. The RPS_S_INVALID_BOUND error response is returned instead.
The array in the GetNtmsObjectAttribute call is defined as a conformant array. When the function is called, the array size is set at run time by the caller.
