Symantec Server Died - reloaded Symantec on New Server - cannot see any client PCs

We had our Symantec System Center and Live Update Server on a server that died last weekend.  I reinstalled Symantec System Center on our new server (Windows 2003).  It has the same name (diff IP - although I checked in DNS and the name resolves to the new IP).  The clients are managed and are mapped to get their updates from the name of the server (not the IP).  

What is the next step to get my client machines to check in with the new server?  Do I have to uninstall - reinstall the client software?  

Could I possibly have to change the IP of the new server back to the old server?  

I've done all the options in the discovery service in Tools, but it never finds anything but the server that I'm on...

What am I doing wrong?  Thanks so much in advance for your help.

I called symantec and they said because the root cert and the client keys don't match because of the SSL on the server.  So I need to upgrade the System Center Client to 10.1.7 and then will be able to push the clients out through the new console.
