LLDP is disabled by default. To enable LLDP on the device, use “lldp run” on the global configuration mode. Again, “no lldp run” is used to disable lldp on that device.


RouterA(config)# lldp run

RouterA(config)# no lldp run



To specify the TLVs on the device, use “lldp med-tlv-select tlv” command. Here, tlv can be inventory-management, power-management, network-policy, location etc.


RouterA(config)# lldp med-tlv-select tlv

LLDP timers can be configured like below:
