Offline Files Synchronization - Can't change sync destination

We recently replaced our 2003 Server w/ a SBS 2003 server.  This was an in place upgrade where the domain stayed the same and nothing had to be replaced on the workstations.  Some of the users have laptops and their My Documents folder is redirected to the server.  I also had offline file synchronization enabled for My Docs so they could view the files when the laptop was offline.  

Now that the old server has been replaced the laptop keeps trying to sync the My Docs folder to the old server.  How do I change this so the sync goes to the new server?

Redirect Config:
Current Setup: \\Server\Redirect\gyearack\My Documents
Old Setup: \\scfile\Redirect\gyearack\My Documents

Sync error: \\scfile\redirect on File Server - DC - DNS (scfile)): Unable to connect to '\\scfile\redirect.' The network name cannot be found.

Thanks for the help
