Cisco Discovery Protocol Driver

Cisco Discovery Protocol Driver

Cisco Discovery Protocol Driver Installation

Supported Unified ICM/CCE systems use the Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) to periodically send out CDP messages to a designated multicast address. These messages contain information such as device identification, interface name, system capabilities, SNMP agent address, and time-to-live. Any Cisco device with CDP support can locate a Cisco Unified ICM/CCE server by monitoring these periodic messages.

You must install the CDP Driver if you want to use the Cisco CDP SNMP features available on Cisco MCS-78xx Series servers.


Note


The CDP Driver is automatically installed on Unified CCE Nodes. Unified ICM CCE/CCH must manually install the driver.
