    the answer is no.
    since sbs2011 is end of support on  January 14, 2020,so we can not get the latest update .
    Update Rollup 4 for Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard is available

    Mainstream Support: The period (usually five years) when Microsoft provides free updates, patches and fixes, including security and feature updates, to improve existing products.
    Extended Support: The period (again usually five years) following mainstream support during which Microsoft continues to provide free security fixes. During the extended support phase users must pay for and license other types of updates to the product.
    End of Support: The end of the pavement; users are on their own beyond this point, and can expect no more paid or free fixes or patches, either security or non-security.

  • Hello Harlan,

    Remember that by default there are a number of group policies that make the server look at WSUS on the SBS 2011 for updates. You may want to unlink them from within Group Policy management and run a 'gpupdate /force' to apply this. After that you can run Windows Update from the Control Panel and it will go to the Internet for updates. You may also want to check 'Check also for other Microsoft products'.

    Depending on what you need to migrate you may also need to install the latest CU for Exchange Server 2010.

    For the rest, the migration kit (you already use that) will tell you what needs to be done.
