Answer
The True or False values for fault detected represent if the AP has crash files within the flash:/crashinfo directory. If there are crash files present on the AP under flash:/crashinfo, fault detected will have a value of true. If there are no crash files present, the value will be false (default). 

You can also determine if the AP and/or wireless controller have crash files associated to the device via the CLI (Command Line Interface). If you see an * symbol at the end of the host name (e.g. nx7500*>#), the asterisk represents crash files. 

Crash files typically means that there is an issue with the AP or there had been an issue. Crash files are not automatically removed and need to be deleted, after exporting the tech-support from the device in order for Extreme Networks GTAC Support to review. The tech-support export will have all of the corresponding crash files present. 

You can delete the crash files from the device via the CLI (Command Line Interface) using the following syntax after successful login (press enter after each command):
>enable
#cd flash:/crashinfo
#dir
#del path:/filename
or
#del *.*

Either method will prompt user for confirmation (Y for yes and N for no):
Delete flash:/crashinfo/dpd2.log_AP7562_5.8.4.0-034R.crash.1 [y/n]? y

The following is an example of the output:
