Configure ESW-540 cisco switch as a DHCP server

Hi
Can we configure ESW-540 switch as a DHCP server with it's own address pool? Have already reviewed the manual but it doesn't seem to have this functionality.

Thanks Hemil,
ESW-540 doesn't seem to be CLI, it's GUI and there is no where to configure DHCP pool in it's gui

You should see a console port in the back looking like an RJ45

Have tried this before, the console port connection will give only configuration options not CLI (almost the same options I see in gui) , This is what I found from the manual :

Q. Do the Cisco ESW 500 Series Switches have a command-line interface (CLI)?
A. No, these switches cannot be managed through a CLI.

IS not supported according to and article I've read on Cisco website.
But what you can do it's relay a DHCP server

Just as a note, I've got the confirmation from Cisco that this model can not be DHCP server.
