CentOS 7 netinstall shuts down network switch port err-disabled

Postby mob » 2018/01/10 19:15:02

Hello Everyone,

I'm trying to perform a CentOS 7 netinstall using CentOS-7-x86_64-NetInstall-1708.iso and a kickstart file. The kickstart file is located on a web server.

After providing the necessary information at the boot prompt, and hitting enter, the installer sends out an LLDP frame to our back-end switch. The back-end switch shuts down the port with state err-disabled.

Is there a way to prevent the installer from sending out LLDP frames during a network installation?

Thanks,
