Boxster 987 uneven wear on new disc

I have just changed the rear disc on my Boxster, but as the brake pads have good depth remaining,  have not replaced them. 
After driving the car to test them I have noticed that the pads are only making contact on the outer and inner edges of disc,  and not making contact with the whole surface. 
What have I done wrong? 
Has anyone had this problem

    Probably because the old pads wore to the old disc.
    Probably worth changing both at that time. i guess the pad will eventually wear into  the new disc.
