  • Hi Faysal,

     

    You have to pass 70-648 and 70-646 exams to upgrade your certification to MCITP: Server Administrator certification. You have to pass four exams to upgrade your MCSA 2003 certification to MCITP Enterprise Administrator certification. These are: 70-648, 70-680, 70-643, and 70-647. 

     

    As you have already passed 70-680 exam, you do not need to take it again. And if you will upgrade your certification to MCITP: Server Administrator certification first, you will not need to take the 70-648 exam again for MCITP Enterprise Administrator certification.

    In this way, you can upgrade your certification to MCITP: Server Administrator certification after passing 70-648 and 70-646 exams and after that you may take 70-643 and 70-647 to upgrade your certification to MCITP Enterprise Administrator certification.

     

    Thanks..

  • According to an elective exam,a combination of A+ and N+ exams can substitute a Microsoft's elective exams.How does Microsoft confirm/the process of merging compTIA certifications with Microsoft certifications to certify you with MCSA certificate or maybe there is a way to combine these certifications online
