WSUS "not yet reported" clients

I recently got asked to fix a WSUS environment that is successfully updating all of the clients although 99% of the clients are not updating their status in the console.  The logs look good and the clients seem to think they are good to go.  I can check gpresults and rsop.msc results to see 100% the updates are coming from the wsus server but none of the usual tricks to get a client to report are working for this server.  Any ideas?

Basic stuff I tried that didn't work are all included in this batch file.
%Windir%\system32\net.exe stop bits
%Windir%\system32\net.exe stop wuauserv
%Windir%\system32\net.exe stop cryptsvc
reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v SusClientId /f
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v LastWaitTimeout /f
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v DetectionStartTime /f
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v NextDetectionTime /f
del %WINDIR%\WindowsUpdate.log /S /Q
rd /s /q %windir%\softwareDistribution
%Windir%\system32\net.exe start cryptsvc
%Windir%\system32\net.exe start bits
%Windir%\system32\net.exe start wuauserv


sc sdset wuauserv D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)

Have you checked to see if the WSUS Settings in GPO are pointing to the correct HTTP path of the wsus server. It could be a simple typo causing the lack of reporting.

This article led me to "Conflicts with System Center Configuration Manager" which led me to the software update point component in SCCM having the do not create wsus reporting events setting checked.  Ty for your help.
