This article briefly describes how to configure LLDP on a virtual I/O server. LLDP is implemented by the lldpd daemon and can be configured and controlled using the lldpctl command.
If LLDP does not work as expected, you’ll get very little information from lldpd by default. This article will show you how to get error messages from lldpd. In addition, the treatment of some possible errors with lldpd will be briefly discussed.
