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
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.
