2.2.2.1 Common SOAP Fault

The SOAP fault message is defined in [SOAP1.2-1/2007]. The following is the specific format used by this protocol.

 <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope">
         <s:Body>
                 <s:Fault>
                         <s:Code>
                                   <s:Value>s:Sender</s:Value> 
                         </s:Code>
                         <s:Reason>
                                   <s:Text xml:lang="en-US">The creator of this fault did not specify a Reason.</s:Text> 
                         </s:Reason>
                         <s:Detail>
                                 [IpamException]
                         </s:Detail>
                 </s:Fault>
         </s:Body>
 </s:Envelope>

The [IpamException] element is the part of the message which provides more information about the fault itself. This will be of type IpamException (section 2.2.4.88) or the types that extend the same.
