New Laptops not showing in Bitlocker Portal

i have a Win Svr 2008 with Bitlocker administration but new laptops are not showing up in the MBAM portal. when i run the reports new PC's are not listed.

i have a GPO that is setup also to enable bitlocker and prompt the user to encrypt. i checked and the GPO seems to be still there applying to the bucket in AD

Since there is a latency in synchronizing, try running the SQL Job to see whether it helps list your new Laptops.

Can you check whether the Server and Client agents are having the same version or not.
If not, either upgrade the Server or client version to have Bitlocker working fine..

Kindly request you to check whether all Laptops are in the same network/domain and if so, then check whether encryption is completed for the new laptops which aren't showing properly.
