Hello Everyone,
Our school is hosting a robotics event over the weekend and we need to turn off several access points to prevent interference.  Is it possible to do this remotely through Hive-manager or do I need to physically go and unplug the access points from the network?  Thanks

I have been in the same situation and there are a few options.

You can disable 2.4 and 5Ghz radios form the Hive manager, or you can disable POE if you have a switch feeding power to the AP's you need to disable.

In my case I have disabled POE on the connected switch.
