Profiles under Terminal Servers

I'm trying to decommission an old file server that holds the staff's profiles.  They all login via terminal services, by design the previous IT co. had each user's profile listed like this under ADUC (\\server1\profile$\user) under the profile tab.

I've created a TEST OU mapping to the new file server and tested the folder redirection with misc test accounts, only this time I used Group Policy to move the user's profile (My docs, App Data, Desktop). Essentially doing the same thing only via Group Policy. (\\server2\profile$\user)

Can I copy the user's existing profiles from server1 to server2 without any trouble and have Group policy pickup where the old server left off?  

Thanks in advance.
