  • There is no exam for 70-447 as it has been retired therefore you are unable to upgrade MCDBA to MCITP Database Administrator (SQL Server 2005)

    All the exams for MCITP: Database Administrator on SQL Server 2005 have also been retired ( 70-431, 70-443 and 70-444).

    The only certifications available for SQL Server Administration are for MCITP: Database Administrator 2008

    Please refer to the following link http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/mcitp.aspx#tab2
