MS Office Saving documents to Libary

We upgraged our domain controller file server from MS Server 2008r2 to 2012 r2.  The problem I am having is users saving MS Word -Excel etc documents to the network
Example: when saving MS Office documents the option states save to Document Library which is still pointing to the old server and I am not sure how to get this to point to the new server

I need some help  since I do not see a Group policy for Document Library

You should have adopted folder redirection.

If the old server is still online, run Server Manager and browse to the location below.

Server Manager and expand Roles > File Services > Share and Storage Management

The folder redirection should be listed there.

the users that have folder redirection the Library is pointing to the correct server. Its the users that do not have folder redirection where its pointed to the old server
