  • No, you've got a few choices though.

    1. go directly to Server 2012 and skip Server 2008.  You will need tests 70-410,70-411, and 70-412

    2.Upgrade your 2003 to server 2008 and grab tests 70-648(or 70-649 as your MCSE also) and 70-646 for MCSA Server 2008 and then finally for MCSA Server 2012 70-417.

  • There is no upgrade path from Windows Server 2003 or MCTS Server 2008 to MCSA Windows Server 2012.  You need to have a MCITP Server 2008 or MCSA: Windows Server 2008 certification to be able to use an upgrade path to 2012.  Please refer to the following http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/mcsa-windows-server-certification.aspx
