Something that may be useful to migrate a standard server to an sbs 2011:

Go to sbsmigration.com and order the migration kit for this project. In short terms you extract the AD information from your old domain and then migrate that information to a SBS 2011 server. Advantage from this method is that your SBS 2011 server can end up with the same servername and ip address as the original server.
