WSUS client not reporting but updating

I am having some issues with WSUS and a few of the clients. All computers appear to be updaiting fine,  but a few of the clients are showing that they have never reported. I checked the windowsupdate log on the clients and they are pointing to the local update server, and also know that updates are downloaded/installed via group policy. What could be the cause of this?

I have a fix that I have been using for our systems.  The batch file runs several commands that I and another tech have culled from the microsoft KB.  It has yet to fail me.

REM  Purpose of batch file is to reconnect a client system to WSUS SERVER.
REM  Reference Readme.txt file for particulars.

REM  NOTE: Changes to file must be have a REM statement placed as to what the command changes on the system.

REM Stop the Automatic Updates service
net stop wuauserv

REM Stop the Background Internet Transfer Service
net stop BITS

REM Stop the Windows Management Instrumentation service
net stop winmgmt

REM Delete the old log file.
Del /f c:\windows\WindowsUpdate.log

REM Backup ReportingEvents.log.  Then, delete the contents of
REM  %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution and
REM  %systemroot%\system32\WBEM\Repository
copy %systemroot%\softwaredistribution\reportingevents.log %homedrive%\
del /f /q %systemroot%\softwaredistribution\*.*
move %homedrive%\reportingevents.log %systemroot%\softwaredistribution

REm Registry edits added 2/21/07 John W, info provided by Scott C.
REM Delete SusClientID and AccountDomainSid keys from
REM  HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate - location of WSUS ID to be deleted
SET WU_KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate
reg delete %WU_KEY% /v SusClientID /f
reg delete %WU_KEY% /v AccountDomainSid /f

REM Clear the variable.

REM clear proxy settings
proxycfg -d

REM one of the errors that is fixed by this section is the "8007000e"
REM re-register DLLs ( silent switch optional  /s)
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\vbscript.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\mshtml.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\jscript.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\msxml.dll /s
REGSVR32 c:\windows\system32\MSXML2.DLL /s
REGSVR32 c:\windows\system32\MSXML3.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\actxprxy.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\shdocvw.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\wuapi.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\wuaueng.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\wuaueng1.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\atl.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\wucltui.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\wups.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\wups2.dll /s
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\wuweb.dll /s

REM Start the Automatic Updates service
net start wuauserv

REM Start the Windows Management Instrumentation service
net start winmgmt

REM Force a group policy update
gpupdate /force

REM Roll the WU Client...
wuauclt /resetauthorization /forceupdate /detectnow
Echo NOTE:  Delete current entry in WSUS to allow new entry!!
