Fault Types Overview

A fault type is a data structure that conveys information about errors, such as processing errors, raised by the server. Information can include the nature of the problem, such as “Not Supported” or “NoPermission.”

For example, a NoPermission fault is returned to the client by the server when it denies an operation due to insufficient client privileges.
