I currently have one server in my office running Windows 2008 as a domain controller. We want to upgrade to SBS 2011 and keep the same domain internally.

Is there way to do this?

you have microsoft white papers for this, I recommand using ONLY those and read carefully
especially the parts for the answer file and source server preperation.

As clarification, if you are migrating from server 2008 and do NOT have Exchange or Sharepoint. You can still use the SBS 2008 to SBS 2011 guide. Simply skip the steps that explicitly pertain to exchange and sharepoint. Alternatively, www.swingmigration.com sells a kit (documentation and support) that is custom tailored to your scenario so you don't have to parse a document and decide what can or cannot be skipped.

You received several workable answers. I have done exactly the migration you described, and you never came back with follow-up questions or clarified why the answers given do not fit your needs or are "not workable."
