Migrating Endpoint Manager Clients to new SEPM with old SEPM offline

I am trying to figure out what the best route would be to migrate to a new SEPM with the old SEPM being offline. The 2 servers have different names and IPs so the backup/restore option would not work and since the old server is offline the replication method would not work either.

I know I could use the syslink option to point the client to the new server, but from what i understand I would have to do this to each individual client and there are about 40 so I would rather not.

The old SEPM is MR4, the new one will obviously be MR5....

is your new sep server up and running?
If so why dont you just find the clients and then upgrade them to mr5?

The new SEP server is the only one up and running. The old one is offline. I am trying to find out how to get the clients to see the new server without having to touch each client since there is about 30.
