Upgrading and Replacing ADFS 2.0 Servers with separate ADFS 3.0 servers

I've installed a new server farm running ADFS 3.0.  Our production ADFS servers are 2.0.   Most articles are from the viewpoint of new federation servers, or perhaps those with identical configurations.  I've exported the ADFS 2.0 setting with the export command and imported onto the new ADFS 3.0 servers.  Perhaps if would have been simpler to have used the same service name, certificate name, etc. as before - but I did not.  What I need to know is how to swap the adfs 3.0 server into productions and back out if necessary (there are problems).  I see a command to Set-msoladfscontext - which should be set to the 'primary adfs' server.  Are there other things I need to do as well.

Also, I enabled to functionality on adfs 3.0 for passwordupdate -- and the link works.  Also, I've added the claim rule for password expirations - and I get a password expired message successfully.  Is it not supposed to redirect to the link when expired?

Thanks in advance.

You will have to update/recreate the RPT with Office 365. You are not really clear on the specifics, but assuming everything is different, you are pretty much deploying AD FS from scratch. So once the new farm is up and running, publicly accessible and so on, DNS is changed - login to the primary AD FS server, connect to WAAD via PowerShell and run the Update-MsolFederatedDomain cmdlet. Fallback will need the same steps - point both external and internal clients to the old farm and update/recreate the O365 RPT.
