    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.

  2. Ensure that the PTP service is enabled.
    # svcs -l  svc:/network/ptp:default
  3. Check whether any of the NICs support PTP.
    # dladm show-linkprop -p ptp
  4. If a NIC is found, configure the PTP service to use the PTP hardware.
    # svccfg -s svc:/network/ptp:default setprop config/use_hw=true
  5. Restart the PTP service.
    # svcadm restart svc:/network/ptp:default
