Hello James,

The 5300 switch cannot be configured as a DHCP server. Only under for example web-authentication will the switch hand out temporary IP addresses.

In order to hand out IP addresses via DHCP to your client hosts (routed or switched), you will need to setup an external DHCP server.

Goodluck
