lldp neighbors

I have (2) 7240s connected to some Juniper switches. LLDP is enabled on all interfaces and both devices but I'm not receiving any neighbors from the Juniper devices. The Juniper devices show the Arubas. Has anyone had any difficulty with LLDP and Junipers?

Re: lldp neighbors

On the Aruba controllers do you have these commands enabled under the interfaces plug back to the Juniper switches:
interface gigabitethernet 0/0/0
lldp transmit
lldp receive
Thank you

Yes. I've enabled those on all ports.

Seems to work for me (Aruba3200 + Juniper EX3300 in VirtualChassis):

 

 

(aruba-master) #show lldp neighbor

Are you sure you have "lldp receive" enabled on the physical interfaces? (not port channel)

Re: lldp neighbors

Yes, attached is the int config. 

 

I've also noticed that the Juniper is transmitting the units as well. The transmit and received packets on the Juniper are increasing equally, but the Aruba is only Transmitting.

Can you post the relevant Juniper LLDP config as well?

 

I'm not sure why you would enable LLDP MED on the Aruba-side btw; for the Aruba controller the Juniper switch is not really an endpoint :)

Thats due to my über knowledge of LLDP protocol!

Actually, I did it because it was the only setting left I could fine that might stop it from working. I read up on it later and realized it wasn't what I thought.

 

 

Can you post the relevant Juniper LLDP config as well?

 

set protocols lldp management-address 172.21.0.2
set protocols lldp interface all
set protocols lldp-med interface all

Controller addresses are 172.21.0.20/21.

Re: lldp neighbors

I have found the issue. 

 

Looks like LLDP receiving packets are processed on the default-vlan. If you disable it then the LLDP packets are dropped. If there is a way to change this, please let me know.

 

I've enabled vlan 1 on my internal port channels and now LLDP is updating properly.
