Configuring PEAP 802.1x wi-fi for non-domain bound machines

Anyone have a PEAP wireless network configured to auto-connect with non-AD bound Macs, cert only based authentication (no username/pw)? I've found a lot of guides for similar situations, but not specifically for PEAP without a username/pw.

We have Jamf AD CS Connector issuing certs, but having a hard time with the config of the certs, and the config on the Jamf side so that the machine will pass NPS authentication.

Thank you!

@nwsbear NPS is the issue here, in my experience NPS needs an AD Object.

Understood on NPS needing an AD object/bound machine. What would you all do if you were in our situation? We really just want to get our Macs connected to wireless automatically in a secure way. We have an Aruba wireless environment, and don't think we are married to PEAP. Said wireless network has access to our Windows domain resources, so it needs to be secure.

Thanks for the patience- we're all pretty new to Mac administration here.
