Is there a way to redirect PC users that have the PNA Agent/Online Plug-in that are pointing to an older Citrix server to the new farm server without having to deploy a script or change settings on their client PC?

Since they are referencing a URL, you could give the new server a DNS A record with the old server's name as well as it's own.  This should re-rediect them.  Then you can use the web interface to override the client settings from there.

Are you referring to the Web Interface address on the XenApp Plugin? If so, you can add an additional URL that will get to the clients on their next refresh. Its called Site Redirection.

In WI, mange the server settings of the PNA site and select Site Redirection. In there you will see options, one of which is to redirect the next time the Citrix online plug-in starts up, or the next time it is refreshed.

What I am not sure of, is if this sticks and remains the default on the client... I know you can specify a "Back-Up URL" as well, which will be used in the event of a WI failure.
