How to Enable LLDP Globally

Before You Begin

You have installed the LLDP package. For the procedure, see How to Install the LLDP Package.

Ensure that your role has the appropriate rights profile to perform this procedure. See Using Rights Profiles to Perform Network Configuration.

  1. Change the SMF auto-enable-agents property to yes if it is set to no.
    $ svccfg -s svc:/network/lldp:default setprop lldp/auto-enable-agents = "yes"

    By default, this property is set to yes.

  2. Restart the LLDP service.
    $ svcadm restart svc:/network/lldp:default
  3. (Optional) Customize global TLV units.
    $ lldpadm set-tlvprop -p property=value global-TLV

    where property refers to the property of the global TLV unit.

Next Steps

For an explanation of global TLV units, see TLV Unit Properties.

To display a list of global TLVs, type lldpadm show-tlvprop or refer to Figure 2, Table 2, Global TLV Units and Their Properties.
