A ErrorRecord object that describes the error condition.

Exception typeCondition

The pipeline is stopped. The pipeline was terminated either before the call was made or while the call was in progress. In general, the provider should allow the caller to catch this exception.

When this method is called, the error record is sent to the error pipeline and control is returned to the provider for more processing.
