I was in your boat about 3 months ago.
All I can say is WYSE suppor is about worthless but open a case with them anyways.
Their solution for my problem was reinstall and start over.

I can tell yo one thing that might be a cause.  The firmware version on the devices may not be supported by your version of WDM and may need upgrading prior to discovery.  I added manually as well and it only caused more problems.  You also need to add pointers in DNS for the WDM server.  RTM carefully as there are a lot of good tips in it through the installation I overlooked my first try.

the issue is with the device naming convention... it cannot have '-' or '_'
changing that has resolved the issue.

There has been a hotfix released to solve the issue with naming convention, i have installed it and im now back to WDM not picking up the devices.  ahhhhh... any ideas how to roll it back,
