After migrating from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008, I noticed that there are no computers available on the SBS console>Security>Updates>Change the software update settings>Included Computers.  There are no excluded or included.  All the computers are listed in SBS Console>Network>Computers.  How do I get the list of computers so that I can add them to the WSUSes?

    Check your GPOs for WSUS in GPMC. Make sure that they are not pointing to the old server.
     http://oldsbs:8530 for both settings. You will need to change that to http://newsbs:8530

    The GPO wasn't even linked to the new domain.  Once I did that everything started to work properly.  Thanks!
