Anything that happens during a run of DOTS Name Validation 2 that causes it to be unable to finish its normal processing is an error. If an error occurs, something like the following will be the result instead of the normal output:


Example:



*Error!*

  <Type>Authorization</Type>
  <TypeCode>1</TypeCode>
  <Desc>Your license key does not work on this service.</Desc>
  <DescCode>8</DescCode>


There are four error types described below.

Error type 3: Service Objects Fatal


The Desc will always be the same and the DescCode has no meaning.  This is standard to all Generation 2 DOTS Web Services.  This is a rare error that signals either a bug in the DOTS Name Validation 2 service or a Network/Connectivity issue.
