That's really an Indiana question since you are now under their jurisdiction.

If the sentence is from Iowa, and it is revoked, it means you serve the term of incarceration. If you have a suspended two year sentence, you go to prison on that sentence. If your probation officer has filed a report of probation violations, the judge will hold a hearing and decide what to do. S/he could sentence you to incarceration but s/he is not required to do so. For example, the judge could just keep you on probation.
