So I've just setup a new SCCM 2012 on a Win08R2 server with SQL 08R2SP1

My discovery sees everything in my AD domain, I'm doing some test client installs just manually installing them

No clients are showing up in the console.  I've been reading a lot about this, but can't seem to come up with or "grasp" a solution.

Single site, <1000 devices, 700 users

Thoughts?

Check if the client is installed in control panel.

If yes then try to refresh the machine policy.
================
Apply the settings and open the Configuration Manager Client. Browse to the Actions tab and initiate a Machine policy retrieval.

Used both troubleshooting tips and found that the Config Manager was not fully configured. Clients working now.  Thanks!
