LLDP to get prrper info from Virtual Connect module ?

Frauke had a customer question:

 

*****************

 

My customer wants to use LLDP from his Nexus switch to get information from the VC module.

Some time ago I had a similar request and by that time it was “not supported”.

Does anybody know whether this is “supported” now.

What the customer gets is the following:

 

Chassis id: 0024.81f7.b78b

Port id: X5

Local Port id: Eth1/9

Port Description: not advertised

System Name: VcD_da6e43ddec97

System Description: HP VC FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module 3.30 2011-08-16T03:34:59Z

 

But I could not find a place to configure a value for the System Name (VcD_da6e43ddec97).

 

**********************

 

Info from Ramu:

 

*******************

 

VC supports LLDP. Please refer page # 36 in below VC for Cisco administrator link.

I would suggest the customer check the VC version as well. LLDP has been supported for quite some time. Any other suggestions?

Re: LLDP to get prrper info from Virtual Connect module ?

currenly that "VcD..." string is internal VC domain name and users don't have control to change it. The upcoming feature release 3.70 should be able to change this system name.
