    Thank You for reply sir Tim
    However can You explain what was a purpose of this repository please?
    For some reason it has been created and in my old lab guide to CPPM Essential training it was used during onboarding process

    The [Onboard Device Repository] is a left-over from the past where some devices used PEAP with passwords instead of EAP-TLS for Onboarding. A provisioned device account would end up in that repository. But, now all devices support TLS it is no longer used.
