Cisco switch sf302-8 config as DHCP client

Hi Martin, in the default configuration, the switch is designed to get a DHCP address on the default VLAN (VLAN 1). So if the switch is brand new... it will get DHCP unless there is something wrong with the DHCP service.

If you want to modify the existing switch config so that your switch gets an IP address instead of using a static IP you can change this.

From the CLI

config t

int vlan 1

no ip address

ip address dhcp

From the GUI ->

Ip configuration -> IP V4 interface -> Delete the current entry

This will drop connection to the switch and reset the IP address to 192.168.1.254

Ip configuration -> IP V4 interface -> Add new entry and choose dynamic.
