Configure the LLDP System Control Status

This section describes how to configure the LLDP system control status, which is set to Start by default. You must set the LLDP system control status to Start before you make any configuration changes in LLDP.

  1. In switch 1, shut down LLDP.
    SEFOS# configure terminal
    SEFOS(config)# shutdown lldp
    SEFOS(config)# end
  2. View the LLDP system control status.
    SEFOS# show lldp
    % Lldp Module is shutdown
  3. Start LLDP.
    SEFOS# configure terminal
    SEFOS(config)# no shutdown lldp
    SEFOS(config)# end

    After the LLDP system control status is changed to Start, LLDP global configuration objects are set with default values.

  4. View the default values for the global configuration objects of LLDP.
    SEFOS# show lldp
    LLDP is disabled
