New install configuring a fortiwifi 30e to support 2 SSIDS - 1 for 2.4 GHz & 2nd for 5Ghz

We have a new fortiwifi 30e and want to setup two SSIDS. SSID1 is only on 2.4G while SSID2 is only on 5 GHz.
How do we create this setup for our 30E ?
Note, in the gui we created a Fortinet 30e fortiap profile with 2 radio settings 1 for 2.4 Ghz and 2nd for 5 Ghz. Yet the profile doesnt appear in local wifi radio ?
The use case is due to the need to support 2.4 GHz only printers...

    All FortiWiFis only have one radio built-in. See https://www.fortinet.com/content/dam/fortinet/assets/data-sheets/Fortinet_Wireless_Product_Matrix.pdf.
    What you were configuring is a profile for an external FAP. Which would be an option if you really want to have both frequency bands.

    What "bump"?
    You've got your answer already - one radio, one frequency. If you want more, get a FAP.
