    Unable to setup several computers as clients with Windows Admin Center

    Previously (about 6 months ago) I had WAC working with Windows 10 (1803) running the host and was able to control all my client machines. Upgraded to Windows 10 (1809) and WAC 1809.5 Build 1.1.1812.03003 and now I can only manage to connect to 1 client.
    I have checked the TrustedHosts list on the server, run the following Powershell commands on all clients:-

    REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 1

    Set-NetFirewallRule -Name WINRM-HTTP-In-TCP -RemoteAddress Any

    The error message I get when I try to add a (failing) client is:-
    A computer with the name 'xx' was not automatically discovered. You can still add it to your connections list, but its availability cannot be verified.

    Could someone help please?
