Clients not reporting

I'm running WSUS to update ten Windows 2003 servers and ninety Windows XP clients.  Three of the servers are not reporting.  I have run cliendiag.exe on these three servers, and they all pass.  However, when looking at the WindowsUpdate.log files on these servers, they wrongly point to an old decommissioned WSUS server -

2008-06-10      14:12:57:688       828      4b4      PT        Server URL = http://fhserver05/SimpleAuthWebService/SimpleAuth.asmx

instead of the current WSUS server which is fhserver08.

The WSUS server is correctly shown as fhserver08 in the registry of each of these servers, and I can find no trace in the registry of the old server, fhserver05.

Can anyone help please?

There is a GPO object associated with the WSUS update location in domains..  Maybe te old server is referenced there?

A Group Policy does point the servers correctly to fhserver08, but when I run rsop.msc on one of the affected servers, it shows the WSUS server incorrectly as fhserver05.

I finally found the answer to this issue. There was a problem with Group Policy/SysVol replication between the domain controllers, which meant that some servers and clients were not getting the current GPOs.
