Hello Experts - I am upgrading a file server (2003 to 2012) for an architectural company running Revit and AutoCAD (2008-2015).  I know CAD can be sensitive to path changes and the new server has an updated name and address.  The drive mappings will be the same.  Will this affect any of the CAD drawings now that they are on a different UNC path?

If the DWG and RVT files only use drive mappings, and as long as they are the same, it shouldn't be a problem.

I assume you've already accounted for the drive maps to the new server.

Using IP addresses and UNC path of course will cause issues.
