2012 Server group policy / WSUS

We have recently implemented two new servers, both of which are Server 2012 R2 Datacenter.  We are trying to get the servers to report to our existing WSUS (version 3.2).  Neither of them are showing up in the WSUS list, so I ran a "rsop" on them and can see that the default domain group policy is being applied but the policy containing the WSUS settings is not.  I have tried "gpupdate /force".  I have checked to make sure the new servers are in the OU in the policy scope.  Is there something about 2012 Server, or the Datacenter edition, that would be causing this issue?  Every other server/device in the scope is receiving policy and reporting to WSUS.

I assume you have rebooted the new 2012 R2 servers? Group policy is group policy. The servers should see all your policies. What does Group Policy Modeling show for the new servers?

There is a bug that can prevent 2012 R2 from talking with WSUS. I manually patch from Microsoft to get updates that fix the bug and.then.point back to WSUS. http://blogs.technet.com/b/wsus/archive/2014/04/08/windows-8-1-update-prevents-interaction-with-wsus-3-2-over-ssl.aspx

Well I feel silly but no, I had not rebooted the new servers.  I thought gpupdate /force had the same effect and would eliminate the need to reboot.  After a reboot, the policy is applied and the servers show up in WSUS.  Thanks!
