  • Hi, If you haven't taken and passed any W2K12 exams passed already, I'd personally look at the W2K16 MCSA. Also depends what O/S versions you currently support. If you're mainly running W2K12 and don't plan to migrate for a few years - W2K12 extended support ends 2023 - then gaining MCSA W2K12 would give you valuable skills and knowledge to help support what you currently have. At a later date you could take the one exam to upgrade to MCSA W2K16. If you have previous certs you might be able to upgrade to either MCSA W2K12 or W2K16 - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/windows-server-certification.aspx. I gained my MCSA W2K12 last year and was going to go for VCP-DCA, but with high VMware license costs of my current environment and as Hyper-V is maturing I've decided to hold off on this in case at a later date we decide to replace VMware with Hyper-V. Hope this helps.
