Provide useful parameters for Enable-NetLldpAgent
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.
And include lldp driver and PS modules in every version of Windows. You can't build a smart network if the individual links are dumb.

Frankly speaking, LLDP in its current form is pretty useless. We are trying to implement network automation/ monitoring and Windows is the only "citizen" that is not able to participate.

Feedback received. We'll look into it as we plan future releases of Windows.
