We have moved to a new WSUS server and de-commissioned the old. However, I still get the error on the old WSUS server (event logs):

Event ID 13032: windows server update

Many client computers have not reported back to the server in the last 30 days. 27 have been detected so far.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

We did update GPO to point to the new server and new server is updating the workstation.

What can I do to get ride of that error?

Uninstall WSUS... – joeqwerty Dec 10 '12 at 19:11

It sounds like you haven't uninstalled the WSUS role from the older server. If you do that, this message should go away.

If you really think about it for a second, how is the old server going to know that you've pointed the clients to a new server? It's just going to think that nothing is checking in.

WSUS isn't fully removed and decommissioned from the old server. Once you do that, you wont get these errors.
