[Brocade VDX 6720]Unable to view LLDP packets in the wireshark

Hi,

I connected my 10G ethernet interface to the switch and started a wireshark trace hoping to see some LLDP packets kicking in as soon as there was a link up but to my surprise, I was not able to see any of the LLDP packets come by. When I tried the same wireshark app on other switch vendors(CISCO), it worked fine. Anyone faced similar issues? It would be really great if I can see these packets as I am planning to use  SPAN.

BTW lldp is enabled on the ethernet interface and all the TLVs are advertised. Is there anything I am missing here?

Regards,

Somu
