Although many RPC protocol methods have unique error messages, most rely on a standard error message format to relay information if a method fails to complete properly. This format has two parts:

  • Method

  • Status

The method part contains the name of the method and the version number of FrontPage Server Extensions from Microsoft. The status part contains:

  • Microsoft FrontPage code

  • Operating system code

  • FrontPage message

  • Operating system message



  • status= integer_code

  • osstatus= integer_code

  • msg= fp_message

  • osmsg= os_message

The status is the error code from FrontPage Server Extensions for the condition encountered. osstatus is the error code from the operating system, msg is the error message from FrontPage Server Extensions, and osmsg is the message from the operating system for the condition encountered.

In general, the codes are integer values and the messages are text strings that summarize the error. Any error may return data for any number of these codes and messages, including the number zero.
