WSUS clients Not Yet Reported

I had to install WSUS on a new 2008 R2 server due to crashed server.  The clients are showing up but all are in "Not Yet Reported" status.  I have checked GPO to ensure it is pointing to correct server,  Forced GP updates on clents, restarted clients and tried most of the suggestions I could find by google search.

Any suggestions on how to get the client to report and get WSUS updates would be appreciated.

there is 2 options in WSUS mmc : you can give your updates to clients using gpo, or not (just using WSUS console).
I think it is in parameters, client options or something like that. Sadly actually I don't have a 2008 R2 here under my hand..

Try to run this command wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow and wait for some time and see it's reporting?

Thanks for the responses. It is appreciated as always.

I tried running the commands on several clients but they still did not report after 24 hours.
I found that the server hosting WSUS required MS Update KB2720211 needed to be installed.  After installing the update and restarting the server, the clients started reporting.  All is working normally now.

Thanks again
