I recently uninstalled WSUS from a Server 2012 server core machine and installed it on a different Server 2012 server core machine. Everything is operational on the new server with no problems. However, on the old server, I am getting an error
(this is mainly an issue because SCOM generates an error because of this). Either way, I want to get to the root of the problem on the server so I am curious if anyone else has encountered an issue such as this below (now, I can understand the error
because the WebServices\Root folder has been removed since it isn't a WSUS server no longer):
"Could not find directory path 'C:\Program Files\Update Services\WebServices\Root\' for WebSite with Name :'WSUS Administration' and ID :'1014308378'. This website will be discovered with some properties missing. Operation will be retried.
Details: The system cannot find the path specified.

Remove the SCOM references to the old server and add NEW references to the new WSUS server.
