Have you modified the GPO to point to the new server ??? (set intranet statistics server...)

To point the client computer to your WSUS server
In Group Policy Object Editor, expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Components, and then click Windows Update.

In the details pane, double-click Specify intranet Microsoft update service location.

Click Enabled, and type the HTTP URL of the same WSUS server in the Set the intranet update service for detecting updates box and in the Set the intranet statistics server box. For example, type http://servername in both boxes.

Click OK.
As part of the migration, you are required to delete the old SBS GP objects, including the WSUS GP's pointing to the old server? Was this completed? Specifically, the following GP objects need to be removed.

Dstewartjr, you are a legend!

Thank you very much for your help and Wish you a Very Happy New Year 2012.
Apart from running batch script I added port as well in my GP.

I can see systems getting update as well showing in WSUS consol.

To AJS2011NZ, Yes I have update the GP after migration.Thank you for your help and time!

DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
Yes, the port was most likely your issue all along...since I believe SBS 2011 has sharepoint by default so WSUS is forced to use port 8530.
