This topic is to discuss the following lesson:
I’m on a 2960 and the Port Description only shows the interface name e.g. “GigabitEthernet0/1”, instead of the description. Any ideas why?
What about the Port ID? does it show anything? I’ve seen some examples where the port ID and port description were swapped.
Port id shows the interface as Gi0/1. so basically im getting the remote int info but not the description.
Hmm it might be related to the IOS version then. On my 3560 it worked out of the box after enabling LLDP globally and setting a description on the interface.
for the record, im running IOS 12.2(50)
