When CDP is set to listen or both, you can view Cisco switch information.

1

Log in to the vSphere Client and select the host from the inventory panel.

2

Click the Configuration tab and click Networking.

3

Click the info icon to the right of the vSwitch.

Note

Because the CDP advertisements of Cisco equipment typically occur once a minute, a noticeable delay might occur between enabling CDP on ESX and the availability of CDP data from the vSphere client.
