MCITP: Enterprise and Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    There are two server 2008 certifications, MCITP: Server Administrator and Enterprise Administrator. With the enterprise one requiring more exams on more subjects.
    Currently im studying on server administrator.

    If i take server administrator and would go for enterprise after that, I think it requires 3 exams. (70-643, 70-647 and one vista configuring or similar).
    If i should take them this way, server first then enterprise does that mean u get two certifications? or does the server one get "overruled" by the enterprise one?
    I dont mean in papers, in papers you wuold get two but if im correct it is like this for MCSA and MCSE, if you haev MCSE you have MCSA as well since it involves all of it?
    If i read the roadmap correct that is.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Either way you take it, you will come out as the following:

    MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Configuration; Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure Configuration; Windows Server 2008 Applications Infrastructure Configuration; Windows Vista Configuration; OR Business Desktop Deployment. So essentially, you would be a Technology Specialist in 4 specific (and distinct) areas

    Along with;

    MCITP: Server Administrator; Enterprise Administrator.

    See additional details at: https://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcitp/windowsserver/2008/server/default.mspx and https://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcitp/windowsserver/2008/enterprise/default.mspx

    Also, and interestingly enough; it should be noted that although when chosen wisely, the MCSE normally included the MCSA certification; there are cases where people chose a non-MCSA elective and only earned their MCSE - without their MCSA.

    SDamen, if you still need assistance, let me know!

    Hope that helps.

  • Hi SDamen,



    Windows Server 2008 Certification Overview

    Server administrator and enterprise administrator are 2 certifications (2 series of credentials), and it is not like MCSA &MCSE where the first is included by default in the second. 

    the new certifications didn't go this way of thinking. they are 2 lines of certificates. this is what I understand from MS learning site

  • Yeah true, but it contains pretty much all that is in the server administrator certificate.
    In other words, it looks like its just an extension of the server administrator certificate.

    You can see on the roadmap, the only real difference is the 2 extra exams for MCITP Enterprise and the fact that the real MCITP exam is different because server had less subjects to handle then enterprise. As far as i can see anyway.

  • It does help, I just wonder if its worth it not to get enterprise administrator right away. Whats the differnce between the server administrator PRO exam and the Enterprise administrator PRO exam? If there is a difference it might be smart to get both. Otherwise its just a waste of time really.

    Thanks for the help though :)
