Resilient I/O Domain Requirements

Note - The Oracle Solaris 10 OS does not provide I/O domain resiliency.

    A resilient I/O domain must meet the following requirements:

  • Runs at least the Oracle Solaris 11.2 SRU 8 OS and its primary domain runs at least the Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.2 software.

  • Uses multipathing to create failover configurations for virtual functions and virtual devices. This configuration requires the virtual functions and the virtual devices to be of the same class: network or storage.

  • Has the master property value set to the name of a root domain whose failure-policy property is set to ignore. Any other failure policy setting, such as stop, reset, or panic, supersedes I/O resiliency and the I/O domain is interrupted.

  • Uses only SR-IOV virtual functions, virtual network devices, and virtual storage devices that support I/O domain resiliency. See
