To upgrade your controller, just find it in Airwave, click on the manage tab. Click on the "update firmware" tab and simply choose the version of firmware you want upgraded to. You can optionally schedule it to some future date in with the Airwave plain English dialog box.
To upgrade multiple controllers, they must all be in the same "Group". Controllers can be in "Monitor only + Firmware Upgrade" mode to be upgraded. Controllers can have different platforms and still be upgraded simultaneously. To begin, upload firmware for all the platforms that you want upgraded using "Device Setup, Upload Firmware and Files". Next, edit the group that your target controllers are in (Groups, edit that group). Go to the "Firmware" tab and select the "desired version" that you want your controller platforms to be upgraded to. You have the option of just selecting the desired firmware by clicking save, or by clicking on "upgrade" to upgrade now or schedule an upgrade.
That's about it!
You can click on "System> Firmware Upgrade Jobs" to see firmware jobs that are pending, or have already run. Under "AMP Setup> General" there is a "Firmware Upgrade Defaults" box which toggles whether or not you can upgrade controllers in Monitor-Only mode, the simultaneous jobs you want done at a time, simultaneous devices per job, and how many failures before stopping jobs.

2. Does this automatically save the config & reboot the controller?

I have a few Cisco controllers in a remote office and sometimes have to push code upgrades from our Airwave servers here locally. I always start the tftp download from the controllers themselves, but since the transfers take a long time I often drop the ssh session to the controller and have to guess when it is complete.

I've created an Aruba 200 Controllers group and added a few controllers in to test. They are in Monitor Only + Firmware Upgrade mode. I'm able to upload the new code to Airware and start the firmware upgrade job, but the job fails on the first controller in the group.
Right now the SNMP on the controllers just have the Read string, plus the Trap Receivers setup, do you need to setup a Write string, or does Airwave somehow manage that once you checkoff the Monitor+Firmware Upgrade allowed option?

You can set the default SSH UID/PW in the Device Setup > Communication page, but that only applies to new deivces, it doesn't update existing devices.
