Hi, A site has four Cisco SG300-52P switches that they need to act as 'one switch' - in terms of sharing and knowing MAC address tables, routing on VLANS, switching packets, etc...   and they have four SFP cables and also CAT6 Ethernet cables that can be used as interconnects.  What is the best way to accomplish this task in terms of physical connections (daisy-chaining or connecting them, using the SFP vs CAT6 cables, etc...) and also in terms of Cisco configurations necessary on each and all switches in order to optimize traffic flow between them, reduce congestion and lost packets, increase transmissions speeds, etc... ?   Does one just have to connect the SFP cables for example, or are there other config changes within the IOS that need to be made ?  Are the SFP cables better than the CAT6 Ethernet port connectivity option ?  TIA

The features you are asking for, "sharing and knowing MAC address tables, routing on VLANS, switching packets, etc" are normally functions associated with Switch Stacks. The SG300 does not support stacking.
