Workflow to get CDP information from the host physical nic

Greeting all,

I am looking to see if anyone has any workflows they can share that will get CDP information from a host physical nic to pull the switch and port information

Thanks

Steve

Hi Steve,

I don't have a vro workflow, but here is some example in perl:

vghetto-scripts/cdp.pl at master · lamw/vghetto-scripts · GitHub

and in PowerCli:

and http://www.jonathanmedd.net/2013/07/obtaining-cdp-info-via-powercli.html   ... line 62++ here should be quite easy transferable to vRO javascript.

Regards,

Joerg
