Is there a way to configure the 802.11a radio profile to only use certain channels?

I have a lab that is using some lower 5GHz channels 36 and 40 and 44 for special equipment.  They do not want us (IT) to have our access points configured for 5GHz so it will have any chance to interfere.  If I am able to set the channels to use the ones they are not using  I may be able to get them to agree to enabling 5GHz to provide better service (5GHz) in the area.  I did explain about the future direction of wireless -802.11AC and how this is going to be a short term solution (few years) and eventually we will have to enable 5GHz to support many of the devices that will start to show up and expect higher speeds they see other places on campus.

 

I was able to set 1 channel  to use on the profile but not multiple-   unless I am looking at it from the wrong direction.

You can leave ARM on and then use the ?ap regulatory-domain-profile? defined in the ap-group to dictate which channels can be assigned.
