Hi all,
I can not see  non-dfs channels when i choose 'AP environment' part to 'outdoor'. But, i am able to use both dfs and non-dfs channels when i choose  'indoor'. I have AP-3865e model AP's, PRO-AO-5DIPN and PRO-AO-2DIPN type antennas, mostly use them for outdoor environment. Is it critical to choose the real environment for this AP's, or can i use them 'indoor' mode although they are mounted on outdoor environment, does this change adversely affects AP's capacity performance?

Official Response
In most Asian country there are no non-DFS channels for outdoor use. Selecting AP as 'indoor' and placing them outdoor will violate the local RF regulations and might be penalysed by local authority, so the performance is not relevant to this setting but only the regulatory. We strongly recommend not to set incorrect environment on the AP.
