How can we improve the networking platform and management in Windows Server?

Enable-NetLldpAgent not useful

The Enable-NetLldpAgent , in order to be useful in proper management of a network, should allow setting TLV subtypes.
Or...........Some options I would prefer:
set TLV 1 to ID subtype 5 (network address) instead of subtype 4 (MAC address)
set TLV 2 to ID subtype 5 (interface name) instead of 3 (MAC address)

include the optional TLV 5 system name

MAC address is easily obtained by other networking tools. Using this as the information for mandatory TLVs is redundant and useless.

        Oh, and include the lldp driver and PS module on ALL Windows OS. Managing a network is much more effective with effective LLDP information on all the ports. SNMP is not simple.
