  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have two questions for you and I'd love to get some answers.

    I'm currently achieving my "MCITP: Server Administrator on Windows Server 2008" by taking the following exams:

    Exam 70-640
    Exam 70-642
    Exam 70-646
    Exam 70-680
    Exam 70-662

    Now, If I got this right, if I want to achieve "MCITP: Enterprise Administrator on Windows Server 2008", I should "drop" the 70-646 and instead take the 70-643 and 70-647. Is that correct? If so, do you think I should do it? I can't seem to make what is the essential difference between MCITP Server Administrator and Enterprise Administrator. Other than the fact of the understandable "Enterprise" level.

    My second question to you is: Is there an upgrade path to the MCSA 2012 from the Server Administrator? How about the Enterprise Administrator? If so, which exam(s) do I need to take corresponding to each level of certification?

    Thank you in advance!

  • Daniel,

    I'm in the same situation as you. I'm looking forward to getting MCITP EA by upgrade from SA. I found this about upgrading from MCITP SA to EA that confirm my last post.

    For IT professionals currently holding a MCITP: Server Administrator Certification, you will need to pass the following Microsoft exams to acquire your MCITP: Enterprise Administrator Certification:

    • 70-680: TS: Windows 7, Configuring
    • 70-643: TS: Windows Server 2008 Applications Infrastructure, Configuring
    • 70-647: PRO: Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administraton

    70-647 seems to be like 70-646 but more harder and with enterprise focus. 

    So in your case U only need to pass 70-643 and 70-647.

    Good luck.
