Why would 99% of computers have not reported in to the new WSUS server

99% of all our computers are stating "not reported yet".  We built the new WSUS server and configured the GPO on Thursday.   The WSUS server is listing all the computers but most of them have not reported.

What would cause this?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If it is listing the computers then they've at least made contact. I'd suggest patience.

Patience is not one of my best qualities.  However, I am sure you are correct.

If you want to force reporting, try
net stop "Windows Update"
wuauclt /detectnow

Open in new window

which usually results in reporting within one hour if run on a client.
W10 / W2016 requires a different command:
UsoClient.exe startscan

Open in new window

If that works, you can either force checking by running that command(s) on all clients, or apply patience as suggested ;-).
