My techs just got a pile of fluke test equipment, which can use LLDP to determine what switchport it is connected to. However, the network guys have disabled lldp / cdp as by default it exposes the specific version of IOS that is running.
Is there a Cisco command on C3750E or C3560 series switches on IOS 12.2 to either not supply that specific TLV or have custom response independent of actual IOS version?
I have found via google references to NX-OS being able to do this with no lldp tlv-select system-desc but nothing for IOS.
Not sure which specific TLV has the IOS version in it - maybe basic TLV type 6 "System Description" or one of the LLDP-MED extensions with OUI 00-12-BB subtypes 6 or 7 ("Inventory - Firmware Revision" and "Inventory - Software Revision" respectively)
Many thanks for your input.
