Changes to power, on AP250s, not taking effect

We have changed the power (dBm) on several units, pushed out the new config and hivemanager still shows them at 20 dBm with an asterisk. Shouldn't they be showing the changes that we made? 

We are running Hivemanager version:8.1r2 and the APs have the latest firmware.

That could be a cosmetic visualization issue, Eric.  If you SSH into the AP and do a "show acsp" or a "show int wifi0 (or 1), what do you show as the set power settings?  The show int wifiX will show the value in EIRP and show you the 3 values that go into calculating the EIRP now (kudos to Aerohive for finally adding that in there btw!).

You are spot on. SSH'd into one, ran both commands and it shows that the power was set correctly on each unit. The EIRP is a great feature, I did not now it was there. Really appreciate the help!

PS this sounds like the recurrence of an old bug, I remember this happening a while back.
