I have a few WSUS clients that aren't reporting/connecting to WSUS and when i run rsop.msc on the clients I see they're pointing to an old WSUS server that has since been decomissioned, I've updated the Group Policy and yet say 8 of the 9 clients in that group are fine and 1 still gets the old server....

I've tried regedit but soon as i run gpupdate its resets to the old server....

any help with this is much appreciated.

How did you update the group policy ?
did you try gpupdate /force on the client ?

The cause is that the old server name is referenced on the client in the following keys:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Windows\WindowsUpdate\WUServer and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Windows\WindowsUpdate\WUStatusServer

EddyvanOpdorp - I updated the GP to point to new server and yes both normal reboot and gpupdate /force...

The problem with editing the registry is soon as i run gpupdate it resets it back to older server...

Winfried, the problem is a replication DC.
I solved it thanks to you.
Many thanks.

What does he/she mean by that?

Referring to comment ID: 39200818

Its means that if your AD (Active Directory) have more than one DC (domain controller) then replication must be working ok between them.
If replication is not working as expected then that also could be the issue.
