setting lldp sysname on vvx phones



all my vvx 411 phones identify themselves as " Polycom VVX 411" in the sysname field of lldp.

is it possible to change that info to hostname ?

would help to identify the phone at the switchport, easier that having a list of the same name at all phones.

Hello @stain ,


Welcome to the Poly Community.


There is currently no way to do this. You would need a feature request:
