Except for the X3 series, all adapters must have an AppFlex PTP activation key installed before they can be used for PTP. The key is pre-installed on certain adapters. Use the sfkey utility to list keys, and to install a key if necessary.

  1. Display the installed keys for all adapters:
    # sfkey --all --report
    eth2,eth3: 000F53650CA0
      Product name          Solarflare XtremeScale X2522-25G Adapter
      Serial number         252221503010182518500205
      Installed keys        Onload, SolarCapture Pro
  2. If the Installed keys do not include a PTP or a Plus key, install a PTP activation key:

    • Copy the activation key data to a .txt file on the target server.
    • All keys can be in the same key file and the file applied on multiple servers.
    • The following example uses a activation key file called keys.txt created on the local server:
      # sfkey --adapter=eth2 --install keys.txt
      Reading keys...
      
      Writing all keys to eth2...
      eth2: 000F53650CA0
        Product name          Solarflare XtremeScale X2522-25G Adapter
        Serial number         252221503010182518500205
        Installed keys        Onload, PTP, SolarCapture Pro
