Support for DCBX is automatically enabled when you enable LLDP. This procedure provides alternative manual steps in case certain automatic processes fail.
Before You Begin
Ensure that you install LLDP. For more information about enabling LLDP, see Enabling LLDP on the System.
For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.4.
$ svcs lldp
If the LLDP service is disabled, start the service with the following command:
$ svcadm enable svc:/network/lldp:default
$ lldpadm show-agentprop -p mode agent
If the LLDP agent is not enabled on both modes, type the following command:
$ lldpadm set-agentprop -p mode=both agent
For the other possible configurations of the LLDP agents, see Enabling LLDP on the System.
$ dladm show-linkprop -p ntcs agent
A property value that is greater than zero (0) indicates that the NIC supports DCB.
