Displaying WAP hostname on CDP

Hi,

 

Trivial question.... I've configured hostname on the Dashboard for each WAP, but when I looked at the CDP neighbors on the switch the WAP is connected to, I only see the WAP's MAC address as hostname. How do I display the WAP hostname I configured on the dashboard to show up on CDP?

 

Thanks.

Enable LLDP on the lan switch, and then look at that info.

Re: Displaying WAP hostname on CDP

If you go into the actual switch port to the CDP/LLDP section on the right hand side is a link called "raw".  This display a lot more of the CDP/LLDP info.

 

It is possible you might need to be running 10.x code to see this.  Can't remember.

Are you using Meraki switches and APs or a mixed environment?

Re: Displaying WAP hostname on CDP

Sorry... I should've been more specific about the LAN switch... It's Cisco Catalyst, not Meraki switch. Only the WAP is Meraki.

Interesting... I did look at LLDP neighbor before and was sure that it didn't display the hostname. It does now. I guess I didn't wait long enough for LLDP to update. Thanks.

BTW... Forgot to ask... Does it mean that there's really no way to display hostname on CDP neighbor list on Cisco Catalyst?

I don't know - but Meraki primary supports LLDP.
