I have not done port security at home as I feel like the ports are safe. I am interested in what you find out. I will watch this thread.

What type of port security have you implemented? Are you spread out in a large office building trying to keep people from plugging into your switches?

What happens if you un-tick the Interface Status/Lock setting? See step 4 here.

How about setting "Action on Violation" to "Forward"?
Action on Violation—Select an action to be applied to packets arriving on a locked port. The options are:
- Discard—Discards packets from any unlearned source.
- Forward—Forwards packets from an unknown source without learning the MAC address.
- Shutdown—Discards packets from any unlearned source, and shuts down the port. The port remains shut down until reactivated, or until the device is rebooted.

There is always factory reset on the switch. It should be fairly fast.

And yes there are a lot screens different between the SG350 and SG300 switches but the CLI should be the same.
