The offline folder setting is in the registry. If you are moving from server A to server B then simply rollout out a registry change that changes server A to B.
Or you could reuse the server name and IP address to ensure nothing is affected by your migration.
Or you could simple warn people and ask them to re-establish the Offline folders.
Also, see http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/library/ff484f0e-a8a6-40a4-837e-baed1edfbf881033.mspx?mfr=true for details of how to change the redirection files.

Hope this helps
