How to Set Up an Interface as a PTP Master

  1. Become an administrator.

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

  2. Assign a system as the PTP master.
    # svccfg -s svc:/network/ptp:default setprop config/node_type=master
  3. Enable an interface to listen to the PTP packets.
    # svccfg -s svc:/network/ptp:default setprop config/listen_ifname=interface-name
  4. Determine whether the PTP service is enabled by using the svcs command.
    • If the PTP service is not enabled on the master system, enable it.

      # svcadm enable svc:/network/ptp:default
    • If the PTP service is already enabled, restart the PTP service.

      # svcadm restart svc:/network/ptp:default
