SCCM 2012 SP1 on Windows Server 2012
SQL Server 2008 R2 10.50.4270.0

I have started to migrate SCCM 2007 clients over to SCCM 2012 SP1..Clients appear to be upgrading properly and talking properly, but
Now I see my SMS_CLIENT_CONFIG_MANAGER log is full of:
Microsoft SQL Server reported SQL message 537, severity 16: [42000][537][Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0][SQL Server]Invalid length parameter passed to the LEFT or SUBSTRING function. : sp_CP_CheckNewAssignedMachine

Any idea of what this means...?

First of all check all your Log files on the Server for further errors.
sp_CP_CheckNewAssignedMachine is a Stored Procedure on your SQL Server
