Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) Advertisement missing in VC 4.0.1?

Dan was looking to solve a customer issue:




Recently upgraded one of our Enclosure FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module 3.30 to 4.0.1. I discovered that the LLDP advertise is gone from the 4.0.1? I checked the LLDP from our Cisco switch before the upgrade and the advertisement worked before.


The output from the VC 4.0.1 shows:


Total entries displayed: 0



If I look at our VC 3.30 switch port, the lldp shows me correct data.


Is LLDP advertisement disabled by default on 4.0.1? I can't seem to find any settings for the LLDP in the VC.




Input from Mark:




No we don’t disable or allow it to be disabled.

Maybe this Cisco has an issue with DCBx extensions.


The only thing new in LLDP with VC 4.01 in regards to Flex-Fabric would be DCBx with the introduction of Dual-Hop.

That’s the direction I would go.
