Stuck on ASR9K PTP Configuration

Hi all, I'm sort of stumped with our PTP configuration and looking for some advice.

 

We're using a Microsemi TP5000 Time Server as our dedicated GM, which references GNSS for its time. It's configured to use the g8265.1 unicast profile on domain 10, and I have no issues pointing devices to it's ipv4 listening address as slaves.

 

Since the TP5K only supports 1000 direct clients, I'm tasked to scale this out to some of our 9Ks to act as master clocks so everything isn't pointed to the TP5K directly. Here's a basic topology:

 

[GNSS]--[TP5000]----[ASR9000]----[ASR920]

 

Presently, the ASR9000 and ASR920 are direct slaves of the TP5000 and PHASE_LOCKED. However, in this case, I only want the ASR9000 peered directly with the TP5000 and distributing PTP downward to the ASR920 and other devices.

 

Here's what my current configuration looks like:

 

TP5000 - 10.99.1.1

ASR9000 - 10.88.1.1

ASR920 - 10.77.1.1

How do I configure 10.88.1.1 to be a master to 10.77.1.1?

Re: Stuck on ASR9K PTP Configuration

Just check show ptp platform servo to ensure PTP is phase locked.


[GNSS]--[TP5000]----[ASR9000]----[ASR920]

As per your configuration you have configured port TenGigE0/0/0/0 as slave interface.
So you need to configure another interface which is connected to ASR920 from ASR9000 as PTP master.

Master config will be something like this:

RP/0/0/CPU0:ios#conf RP/0/0/CPU0:ios(config)#ptp RP/0/0/CPU0:ios(config-ptp)#clock RP/0/0/CPU0:ios(config-ptp-clock)#domain 4 RP/0/0/CPU0:ios(config-ptp-clock)#profile g.8265.1 RP/0/0/CPU0:ios(config)#interface TengigE 0/0/0/0 RP/0/0/CPU0:ios(config-int)#ipv4 address 10.0.0.1/24 RP/0/0/CPU0:ios(config-int)#ptp RP/0/0/CPU0:ios(config-int-ptp)#unicast-grant invalid-request deny RP/0/0/CPU0:ios(config-int-ptp)#port state master-only

Or you can configure a master profile and apply to the interface.
