  • Upgrade MCSE 2003 to MCITP(EA) 2008?

    Hi again guys

    I would like to do what it says in the subject (nice and quickly). (My Clients work with 2008 and aren't planning 2012 anytime soon).

    Having looked around, I think I need:

    Exam 70-646
    Exam 70-649
    Exam 70-680
    Exam 70-647

    and that will get me MCITP(EA) Windows Server 2008.

    However - the training provider has confused me and says I also need 70-648 which makes me MCITP(SA)... but isn't that a separate cert? It's not a stepping stone cert is it?

    Would someone please validate my understanding?

    Thanks

    Enterprise admin is more a high level certification.
    Basically you can think about this:
    I want PKI, I know how to design it with an offline root CA etc.... Oh Server Admin, Please do implement the PKI for me following my designs.

    You can find a nice recap about it over here:

    But yes, they are 2 different certifications, with some overlap in it.

      Roughly SA is the old MCSA equivalent, so concentrates on day to day admin
      EA is the MCSE equivalent so higher level design and planning

      IIRC there is only the MCITP exam different between them -- both rest on the same (or similar) set of TS exams
