How do I migrate the domain controller on server with SBS 2011 to new one with Standard Server 2016?

The client is no longer using Exchange on SBS, so I just need to move AD accounts and DNS responsibility to the new Windows 2016 server. This is a little above my level of expertise. Thanks for your help!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

Here's a great article I used to use a lot for SBS migrations:

It should give you a decent overview of the process, although some steps may vary.  Once the new server is good to go, you can uninstall Exchange via Programs and Features.  That may come along with it's own issues that pop up, but those are easy to Google.

Hi, there's no need to call "migration" it would be an update.
You'd need to check the forest and domain levels, sbs 2003/2008:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/identity/ad-ds/active-directory-functional-levels
and the prerequisites for 2016:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/windows-server

The procedure would be:
deploy the windows server 2016, add the "Domain Services" role, and promote it to Domain controller.

All the users and configuration will be synchronized with the new AD DS.
Now you would need to add some several configurations to make it work flawlessly.

Here's a step by step applied for 2012 r2,

Which can be applied for 2016 as well.
