Aruba 2930M/F LLDP config

How to configuring LLDP profile on Aruba 2930M/F?

My 2930M/Fs are sending LLDP port info as ifIndex, - which is the default setting, then I couldn't found any related solution at the CLI guide. Is there any way to change ifIndex to PortName?


Brocade and Juniper switches have same issue, but they have an option that able to change ifIndex(default) to PortName.


Thanks. Best regards,

Maybe I'm totally wrong but I think that LLDP advertises using a set of mandatory (not configurable) data:




Example (interface 1/A1):


switch# show lldp info local-device ethernet 1/A1

LLDP Local Port Information Detail

Port : 1/A1 
PortType : local 
PortId : 1 
PortDesc : 1/A1
Pvid : <vlan-id>


And this is the corresponding LLDP config for that specific port (1/A1), pretty much default in this case:


switch# show lldp config ethernet 1/A1 

 LLDP Port Configuration Detail

  Port : 1/A1  
  AdminStatus [Tx_Rx] : Tx_Rx  
  NotificationEnabled [False] : False
  Med Topology Trap Enabled [False] : False

   * port_descr

Re: Aruba 2930M/F LLDP config

Thank you for the reply.


I think my english was not good,

I mean LLDP TLV type=2 PortID, which is mandatory and usually it is using subtype=1 PortAlias, such as Gi1/0 or Ge1/0, but seems Aruba 2930 using subtype=7(locally assigned) - I'm guessing it's ifIndex on SNMP.


Other vendors support configurable subtype option so I wonder Aruba has same things or just not supported/implemented yet. Any idea?
