Each physical domain can have only one degraded configuration saved to the SP. If a degraded configuration already exists, it is replaced by the newly created degraded configuration.
You cannot interact directly with degraded configurations. The system firmware transparently boots the degraded version of the next power-on configuration, if necessary. This transparency enables the system to boot the original configuration after a power cycle when the missing resources reappear. When the active configuration is a degraded configuration, it is marked as [degraded] in the ldm list-spconfig output.
The autosave functionality is disabled while the active configuration is a degraded configuration. If you save a new configuration to the SP while a degraded configuration is active, the new configuration is a normal non-degraded configuration.
