1 When you say you had him served, do you mean that the constable found him and got him the papers, If so, they can simply note the address at which he was served. If he is served in hand, he is served, and you are done. 2 If you mean they went to the wrong address and DIDNT give him the papers, or just left them there, you should serve him at the right address.
