we have windows 7 clients and users configured with roaming profiles stored on a windows 2003 file server. now we want to decommission the windows 2003 file server and move the Roaming profiles to a new windos 2012 r2 file server cluster. one of the folders in the user profiles is redirected to the users home folder. home folder is also residing on the same windows 2003 file server. after the profiles are migrated we want to get rid of the roaming profiles and use only folder redirection pointing to the new file server cluster.

need some ideas and the best way to go about it

Getting rid of the roaming profiles are easy so are you asking for help to get rid of the roaming profiles or how to move the redirected folders & decommission the 2003 server? If all you are asking is how to get rid of the roaming profile you simply go to AD Users and Computers and on the profile tab remove the info that provides the location for the roaming profiles. If however you are GPO to setup and manage roaming profiles then In the Group Policy Management Editor window, navigate to Computer Configuration, then Policies, then Administrative Templates, then System, and then User Profiles. Right-click Set roaming profile path for all users logging onto this computer and then click Edit and remove it or simply disable that GPO.
