About this task

To time-synchronize two SmartNICs, they must be connected via a time synchronization cable. The connection between the SmartNICs can be made internally if they are mounted in the same server by using the connectors on the PCBs or externally by using the connectors on the front plates.

Procedure

Connect the relevant time synchronization cable to the relevant external time synchronization connector (see Time Synchronization Connector Specifications) on the front plate of the SmartNIC.
