Processing HTTP_Redirect from idp

We are in the process of moving entityID's.  I don't know how "example idp"
has theirs configured but in the case they have explicitly named the
corresponding SP's entityID, *and they are still pointing at the old one, *is
the HTTP redirect indicative of that situation?

For example, the example idp is setup to use this link:
and we are trying to test their configuration using:"exampleentityid"

We are in a precarious state where we need to serve thousands of users and
we want to switch them over to a new SP, *seamlessly*.  Our plan was to
change DNS records/bindings so that their login links point to the new site
- but we want to do that with as much confidence as possible.  Do you have
any recommendations?  I realize this question might be outside the scope of
this forum.
