    Is there a way for me to easily disable 2.4 for all Access points in a group in Aruba Central without having to do it on each individual one? Also along the same lines. Is there a way to set the management vlan for all APs in a group vs touching each and every single one? I've already spoken to support and they did not seem to think it was possible, which sort of blows my mind(switching over from merak where this was possible).

    yes you can do that by touching every AP, however you could do it faster using Aruba Central API

    Another option is to disable 2.4 GHz on all of the SSIDs that are broadcasted in your group. That is done under the General (step 1), Advanced Settings, Miscellaneous, Band. Default is 'all', set it to 5GHz to only broadcast on the 5GHz radio. If you have multiple SSIDs, do that for each of your SSID.

    Even one more option is to under ARM (setting under Radios in your Group) remove all the channels from 'Valid Channels'. If there is no channel to pick from, the radio will be disabled.
