    Link Discovery (LLDP) is used to discover the far end switch or equipment connected. LLDP is useful when connecting remotely to a lab or in other cases when the topology is not known.

    I came across this problem using Windows servers 2012 and Mellanox ConnectX-3 Adapter cards, and found the LDWin tool.

     

    It is fairly easy to use (just install), using this link LDWin
