The current implementation of Web Services (WS) does not support SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol ) faults. Currently BRM WS Manager propagates the error messages as flists converted to xml through WS.

 Steps To Reproduce:

1. On a BRM instance with WS Manager running, stop the CM, DM, or both.
2. Make a WS call using a preferred tool (e.g SOAP UI).

When BRM is down, WS manager returns the below (xml format):

<opcodeReturn>ERROR: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<LOCATION>Unknown Location</LOCATION>

It should be returning a SOAP failure packet like below:

<message>Unknown Location</message>

The WSDL 1.1 specification section which refers to SOAP faults is available at the following link http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl#_soap:fault
