Add Existing Computers to 2012 R2 Essentials Dashboard

I recently upgraded a domain to a 2012 R2 domain. I enabled the Essentials Role so I could utilize the Remote Web WorkPlace feature. This was a migration from SBS 2003 to stand along 2012 R2 so my default OUs are the standard SBS OUs under the MYBusiness.

All my users under SBSUsers showup in the 2012 R2 Essentials dashboard but none of my computers do. They are located in the SBSComputers OU.

How do I get these to showup in the dashboard? I know for new computers I can run http://server/connect but what about current active domain computers?

You can still use the connect wizard, even for machines already joined to the domain. Essentials installs a small piece of software for backups and status monitoring, so you still need to run the connect wizard.
