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

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