WSUS win7 clients - yellow exclamation mark

Using WSUS 3.0 SP2 on Win2k8r2 server by group policy.  I have two win7 clients that appear to be connecting successfully.  The WindowsUpdate logs are not generating any errors.  I can push out new updates to the clients.  I'm able to see my two clients on the WSUS server however there is still a yellow exclamation mark next to each of the pc's and 'Change Membership' is greyed out.

I'm using a server specifically for WSUS/IIS.  So I've used port 80.  I've configured the 'Specify intranet Microsoft update service location' on the client and the DC to be http://hfchqbackup3

Any ideas why I'm getting the yellow exclamation mark?

yellow exclamation mark will disappear when client will be 100% up to date, I can see yours are 99% and 98%
Red x means one or more updates failed to be installed and you should check which one is problematic and search for troubleshooting

yellow exclamation mark at the list of computers indicate that the computer has not reported status in 48 or more days. The most likely possibility is they are powered off during the weekend, or the clients are out of the connection to the wsus in its detection cycle. The red exclamation mark means updates installation failure.

the first comment is correct.  if there are no updates required for a client, there will be no icon there

if it was because of being more than 48 days, the 'last status report' wouldn't be showing today's date

You cant change membership unless you select the setting "Use the Update Services Console" under Options>>>Computers
