Force10 LLDP Configuration

I have been trying to setup LLDP on some of our Force10 switches. I am having an issue getting the information I want from it.


So far I have this configured:


protocol lldp
 no disable

interface TenGigabitEthernet 0/51
 description backup-S50V-Mpls
 no ip address
 switchport
!
 protocol lldp
 no shutdown

But when I type show lldp neighbors I am barely getting any information:
backup-S50V-StPaul#show lldp neighbor
 Loc PortID   Rem Host Name     Rem Port Id                Rem Chassis Id
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Te 0/51      -                 TenGigabitEthernet 0/51    00:01:e8:d7:3f:18


How do I get the Hostname, remote ip(if there is one) and more detailed information to be transmitted between the two switches?

I've heard it has something to do with Advertise TLVs?


Also an example of how to configure this in Cisco IOS and JUNOS would also be much appreciated.

What version of FTOS are you running?

im running FTOS 8.4.2.6

protocol lldp
 advertise dot1-tlv port-protocol-vlan-id port-vlan-id
 advertise dot3-tlv max-frame-size
 advertise management-tlv system-capabilities system-description system-name
 advertise med
 hello 10
 no disable
 advertise interface-port-desc

make sure you do this on both ends

I think its he same version, or 8.4.2.5, will check tomorrow. Is there a usual max frame size set for LLDP, I do remember seeing these commands available? I'm coming from Cisco CDP land so I'm not used to setting this different values. Could you show me a generic example of those data fields filled?

As far I know you can not change the frame size for lldp.

If you wan to see the device name all you should need is this

protocol lldp 
 advertise management-tlv system-description system-name 
no disable

The only reason I added all the other stuff is if you want a more detailed output. for ex:

# show lldp neighbors detail

 Local Interface Te 0/0 has 1 neighbor 
  Total Frames Out: 605251 
  Total Frames In: 516297 
  Total Neighbor information Age outs: 0 
  Total Frames Discarded: 0 
  Total In Error Frames: 0 
  Total Unrecognized TLVs: 0 
  Total TLVs Discarded: 0 
  Next packet will be sent after 1 seconds
  The neighbors are given below:
