WSUS Clients Not Reporting From Remote Offices - Used to work.

I have a medium sized network with a main office and 3 remote offices.  WSUS used to work fine for the remote offices until our domain controller here at the central office died and had to be rebuilt.  The WSUS server is another machine entirely so I'm rather stumped as to why that would affect this.

The PCs and servers here at the main office are functioning perfectly with WSUS, but the PCs at the remote sites are not reporting at all, and haven't since the DC was replaced.

Thanks in advance.

How you have configured the clients to connect to WSUS server. Through Group Policy or manually? If you deployed the clients using GP , check the these clients are able to recive the GP from the new server.

My apologies for not including that info...

The clients connect using settings from GP, and the client PCs are able to get the GP.  Client PCs can ping the server as well.
Please try running the tool mentioned in the link below.

I did run the diag script you menationed - but in the end it required a restart of the WSUS server... horray for MS!
