I require assistance setting up a Cisco SG300-10 switch, please.

Greetings! I had recently purchased a Cisco SG300-10 switch for our facility. It is much more feature rich than I am used to, and I am not a Cisco tech by any means. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this specific device that could help smooth out the configuration.

I did some testing with this device and have found that I am having difficulty getting the workstations at our satellite office (over the Comcast Metro-E connection) to accept an IP address from our DHCP server here at the main site, even with the DHCP Relay enabled.

I would greatly appreciate any additional advice. I have attached a basic schematic of how we intended the network layout to look like once finished.

Here is an example of a switch build

for your DHCP issue you need to configure IP helper on the Switch

Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
