I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sound's like a DNS problem, check the DNS service up and running on the server and make sure is responding.
Make sure DNS is pointing to the new SBS 2011 machine and not the old SBS 2008 machine
