    Default Google Device Manager doesn't work

    I haven't been able to get Device Manager to work on my N5. It's checked under Security/Administrators but when I open the app I get a spinning wheel and when I look at the device manage webpage it says no active devices. I've tried doing a force stop and clearing the data then restarting the app, that didn't help. What's the trick for making it work?

    Have you registered your device with your google account? I've never done anything to actively set it up. My devices just show up. https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager?u=0. I have N5 on stock.
    If you did register it, try deleting your google acct. from the n5 then adding it again.

    Yes. I've just done the delete account/add account thing and it made no difference.

    Is google service app up to date? Are you running AdBlock? Is Location turned on?

    I've also tried a Force Stop and clear data on Google Services Framework, followed by a reboot. That had no effect.

    The check boxes were set on both the N5 and N7. I tried disabling and re-enabling and I also tried disabling, rebooting and then re-enabling, nothing works.
