Getting Status from Remote Tag Provider

Is there a way to get the OPC status from a Remote Tag Provider? I had a situation where a power outage corrupted an Ignition “Server”. When it came back up, my local server connected to the remote server just fine, but the OPC server of the remote system had faulted!

I know about system.opc.getServerState, however if I made a tag that looked at the OPC server on the remote server then in this case when the OPC server faulted it would have just gone to a “Null” state with the rest of the tags and Remote Tag Providers aren’t actually OPC servers so I can’t set it up on my local computer. I could have an alarm evaluate off a “Null” response, however I was hoping for something a little more error proof. Any suggestions?
