We have one ssid across campus using 802.1x. Users authenticate to AD and get different roles based on staff/student/etc.
I'm having problems in one dorm, and I'd like to try going to 20Mhz channels only in that dorm. But I don't want to affect the rest of campus.
is it possible to create two wlan ht-ssid-profiles, and attach them to different wlan ssid-profiles, each of which are broadcasting the same ssid?
I'm guessing that roaming could be an issue, but if I restrict the 20Mhz only channels to one dorm only, I'm thinking that won't be a concern.
Or is there a better way to do this?
As always, many thanks,

thank you! I had hoped there was an easier way.
If I understand correctly I'd need to create:
a new rf-arm profile:
rf arm-profile "20Mhz-Only"
create rf profiles referencing above:
rf dot11a-radio-profile "20Mhz-only-a-prof"
rf dot11g-radio-profile "20Mhz-only-g-prof"
then create a new ap group referencing the rf dot11 radio profiles:
Does that seem correct?

Yes. You can use the clone command to make it a bit easier.
# ap-group Just-20MHz (AP group)# clone <old-ap-group>
(AP group)# dot11a-radio-profile 20Mhz-only-a-prof
(AP group)# dot11g-radio-profile 20Mhz-only-g-prof
Then you can just change the profiles you need to.
You can also use the clone command with the arm profiles at the CLI.
Also, long-term, you should consider doing ap-groups by building. It makes things much easier to manage.

I created the arm profile shown and applied it to the APs in that dorm.
I noticed that most (but not all) of the APs came up on channel 161.
This might be OK, but it looks a little suspicious, since many of the APs can see each other.
Is there an ARM setting that might be prohibiting proper adaptive frequency selection?
