Rebooting the Root Domain With Non-Resilient I/O Domains Configured
If your I/O domain is resilient, it can continue to operate even when the root domain that services it is interrupted. For information about configuring resilient I/O domains, see I/O Domain Resiliency
As with PCIe slots in the I/O domain, the concerns that are described in Rebooting the Root Domain With PCIe Endpoints Configured also pertain to the virtual functions that are assigned to an I/O domain.
Note - An I/O domain cannot start if the associated root domain is not running.
