  • Question

  • On January 31 2014 Microsoft said will retire the following exams on Windows Server 2008:

    70-640 Active Directory and 70-642 Network Infrastructure

    On microsoft site, said: Under Exams scheduled to retire>Windows Server>Retiring on January 31, 2014 The exams 70-640 and 70-642 no longer appear on the retirement list

    What is going on? Did Microsoft will retire those exams or not?

    There is only 3 months left until Jan 31 2014. I'm studying like crazy to take both exams
    before dead line.

    Did anyone knows the official answer to, if Microsoft will still retire 70-640 and 70-642 on Jan 31 2014?

  • Hi,

    The exams for MCSA: Server 2008 (70-640, 70-642 and 70-646) will not retire on January 31. These three exams used to be part of the MCITP: Server administrator certification and that certification has retired but the exams are still valid for MCSA: Server 2008:

    The exam for MCITP: Enterptise administrator (70-643, 70-647) and the upgrade exam from the old MCSE to MCTIP: Enterprise administrator do retire on January 31:

    You can upgrade from MSCA: Server 2008 to MCSA: Server 2012 with exam 70-417.
