I noticed that my Unleashed network (3 x R600, running 200.1.9.12.55) is having
 - Same channel for 802.11bgn 2.4 GHz (1) for each AP
 - Three different channels for 802.11anac 5 GHz (44,108...) for each AP

Am I missing something?

Are you using ChannelFly automatic channel assignments? If so, I wouldn't be concerned. Sometimes the right channel assignments are to put all the AP's on the same 2.4GHz channel if the other ones have more interference and you don't have a lot of simultaneous 2.4GHz traffic. If that changes and you start using your channel heavily, the other AP's will react to the loss of capacity and switch to a better 2.4GHz channel.

This is a cosmetic bug in the GUI.  I spotted the same in our test lab; every AP will show as being on the same 2.4GHz channel (normally the channel that the master AP is on). 

If look at the 2.4GHz channel in each AP's CLI, you can see that the APs are not all on the same channel, but are distributed between the channels.  You could also use something like inSSIDer to see that the APs are on different 2.4GHz channels.

I logged this with Ruckus support a few weeks back and they have logged it as a bug.

I've just tested this and the bug is fixed in 200.2.9.13.186.
