If you take the switch fresh out of the box and power it up all ports will be active in vlan 1. You can connect your servers to switch ports and they should come active as access ports. The real question is whether you have some device connected to the switch that provides DHCP to the connected devices. If you do have a device providing DHCP and it has an appropriate scope configured then it should work.
We do not have enough information to be able to answer the question of why the server cant get DHCP. You have told us that it is a 2960 just out of the box. So it should be that all ports are configured as access ports in the default vlan. But you have not told us anything about how the switch connects to the local LAN. What does port 24 connect to? Is the local lan a flat network with a single VLAN or are there multiple VLANs?
