The FIM Service's endpoints respond to exceptions by returning SOAP faults to their clients. The WS-Transfer specification and the WS-Transfer: Identity Management Operations for Directory Access Extensions specification define several such faults that the Resource endpoint may return. There are additional SOAP faults, specific to the FIM Service, that may also be returned.

Supplying a Locale property will result in an Endpoint Not Available exception.
