Hi 

Hi 

I think my answer is for both question. 

Layer 2 and Layer 3 modes can be supported at the same time on a switch (if it is multilayer switch)

Basically you can change a switchport (layer 2) to work as layer 3 where you can configure an IP address on the interface. Also on layer 3 you can enable routing.

If a switch works on layer 2  only you cannot enable routing or assign IP addresses to physical interfaces. 

On layer 3 switches you can have for example:

Interface like layer 3

inteface g0/1
no switchport
ip address 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.0

Interface like layer 2

interface g0/1
switchport
switchport access vlan 10
switchport mode access

The SG350 Switch model should support both, layer 2 & 3.

Please rate the comment if it is useful
