Is there any official documentation about what kind of Information a Standard or Distributed vSwitch will provide to a physical switch? I couldn't find anything like that. regards, Ronny

thank you Ashutosh, but what I'm actually looking for is CDP info from ESXi which is propagated to a physical switch.
What information does a network admin see when ESXi shares CDP information?
Is there a complete list of what information ESXi shares with it's CDP neighbours (i.e. Device ID, Capability, Platform, Port ID, etc.)?
I don't have access to a switch to test but if you make sure cdp is set to advertise on the esxi switch you can check on the switch. I found an article that has an older image of whats available, at least at the time the article was wwritten
