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 https://support.oracle.com/CSP/main/article?cmd=show&type=NOT&doctype=REFERENCE&id=1325454.1.
