SG300-10 ( Layer-3 Mode

I'm having an issue getting my SG300-10 into Layer-3 mode.  I had it in Layer-3 mode under version, performed a factory reset by holding down the hard-reset button for 10 seconds.  Updated boot loader to and SW Firmware to


switchc4f42e#sh ver
SW version ( date  06-Aug-2014 time  16:55:55 )
Boot version ( date  21-Jul-2013 time  15:12:10 )
HW version    V02


Now I cannot find the option to switch it back into Layer-3 mode.  There is no "menu" option at the console (serial).

Never mind, I found it ....

switchc4f42e#set system mode router
Changing the switch working mode will *delete* the startup configuration file and reset the device right after that. It is highly recommended that you will backup it before changing the mode, continue ? (Y/N)[N] Y
