I have verified that wmi repository is consistent by running winmgmt /verifyrepository.  I have numerous repository.xxx files but the oldest one is from 6-2-2014.  Is it safe to simply delete these repository.xxx files?

No, it is not. At least, not if you use WMI for anything. Those files hold data and definitions used by WMI, so just deleting them will probably cause problems. https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/rslaten/2013/05/30/troubleshooting-wmi-repository-bloat/ should give you some assistance in resolving the issue safely, though.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
