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.

SHLIB is a command line tool for manipulating Libraries and its syntax is here:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/library/dd940379
Unfortunately M$ wants you to install the entire SDK in order to get a copy; but, I found it here:
http://www.grimadmin.com/filemgmt/index.php?id=5
Play with it a little in a CMD window and then create a script or BAT file with
SHLIB CREATE FOLDERID_DocumentsLibrary <path to new server's folder>
SHLIB REMOVE FOLDERID_DocumentsLibrary <old server folder>
to do what you want to do.
You can then deploy it as a login command or have each user run it once to update the Library locations.

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

SHLIB will fix it for you; but, not automatically.
