WSUS upgrade

I have build up a new VM with WSUS role on Windows 2012 (Old WSUS server was on 2008).
On the new server under Administrative Console for WSUS its not showing any computers.
I have named the new server the same as old server, what do i have to do to start seeing computers under WSUS?
All computers are pointing to new server on group policy.

Thanks

You will probably need to change the Group Policy that is used for Windows Updates to point the client PCs to the new server.

I have not tested this solution, but its worth a test on a single machine.

assuming you are already using GPO by name and not IP, have you confirmed firewall ports as well?
