setting 11a channel


I use Aruba Mobility Controller 3600, with AP-135

I am trying to create a static 11a channel 48 in legacy. 

My configuration commands(not copying ssid profile)

(Aruba3600) (config) #rf dot11a-radio-profile mydot11aradioprofile
(Aruba3600) (802.11a radio profile "mydot11aradioprofile") #no high-throughput-enable
(Aruba3600) (802.11a radio profile "mydot11aradioprofile") #channel 48

(Aruba3600) (config) #wlan virtual-ap myvirtualap
(Aruba3600) (Virtual AP profile "myvirtualap") #allowed-band a
(Aruba3600) (Virtual AP profile "myvirtualap") #ssid-profile myssidprofile
(Aruba3600) (Virtual AP profile "myvirtualap") #vlan 20

(Aruba3600) (config) #ap-name 6c:f3:7f:ce:60:a2
(Aruba3600) (AP name "6c:f3:7f:ce:60:a2") #virtual-ap myvirtualap
(Aruba3600) (AP name "6c:f3:7f:ce:60:a2") #dot11a-radio-profile mydot11aradioprofile

My ssid shows channel 149. It is not setting to desired channel. The default regulatory profile default shows 48 as valid channel.

(Aruba3600) (config) # show ap regulatory-domain-profile default
Regulatory Domain profile "default"
Parameter Value
--------- -----
Country Code US
Valid 802.11g channel 1
Valid 802.11g channel 6
Valid 802.11g channel 11
Valid 802.11a channel 36
Valid 802.11a channel 40
Valid 802.11a channel 44
Valid 802.11a channel 48
Valid 802.11a channel 149
Valid 802.11a channel .........

Also, the dot11a radio profile, the channel is set.

(Aruba3600) (config) #show rf dot11a-radio-profile mydot11aradioprofile
802.11a radio profile "mydot11aradioprofile"
Parameter Value
--------- -----
Radio enable Enabled
Mode ap-mode
High throughput enable (radio) Disabled
Channel 48
Beacon Period 100 msec
Non-Wi-Fi Interference Immunity 2

Please tell how I can set the channel 48.

Thanks in advance.
