I need to implement VLANS across 3 SF-300 switches. We need VLANS to go across the switches. That is we can assign 3 VLANS to the different switches and they would be seen across the 3 switches. The switches are linked through their Giga Ethernet port. A false switch stack if you will. Switches are in L2 mode. We created the VLANS on each of the 3 switches , say VLAN 4,5,6. We have tagged the uplinks but the VLANs do not seem to be seen trough all switches. Only on one of the switches . We are utterly newbies. Can you help? Thanks in advance
You need to configure the VLAN on all switches. And the links that interconnect the switches must be configured as trunk ports and the VLAN's you use must be allowed on these trunk ports as tagged VLAN's. (VLAN management -> Interface Settings)
Also make sure the PVID is the same on all of these uplink ports. (by default it is 1, which is fine)

The Sx500 Series Stackable Switches offers different port features. You
can add security to a port, make the port more energy efficient, map a
VLAN to a port, make a port available or not to a specific network
