SoapException.ServerFaultCode Field

Specifies that a SOAP fault code that represents an error occurred during the processing of a client call on the server, where the problem is not due to the message contents.

Namespace:  System.Web.Services.Protocols
Assembly:  System.Web.Services (in System.Web.Services.dll)

public static readonly XmlQualifiedName ServerFaultCode

A ServerFaultCode might occur, for example, if a server being called cannot respond to a request due to network problems. Typically, with this type of exception, the client call might succeed later.

If an XML Web service throws an exception, other than the SoapException, and the client is communicating with the XML Web service using the SOAP protocol, ASP.NET returns a SOAP fault. The .NET Framework running on the client machine converts that SOAP fault into a SoapException, setting the Code property to ServerFaultCode, and throws that exception to the client.
