I believe most of you already know this, it’s not just in at all. Windows Server 2008 exams 70-646 and 70-647 are available at Prometric test centers worldwide as of last week. These are the two professional-series exams that make it possible, now, for you to earn your MCITP certification: Enterprise Administrator or Server Administrator.
Can I be both a MCITP: Server Administrator and MCITP: Enterprise Administrator if I pass all the necessary exams for both certifications? Yes.
Is Exam 70-647 a superset of Exam 70-646? I.e. if I take Exam 70-647, will I earn MCITP: Server Administrator certification automatically? No. In the past, MCSA could be a subset of MCSE, but based on feedback we received, we now have two separate paths: Enterprise Administrator is focused on design and Server Administrator is focused on operations. Unlike MCSA and MCSE certifications, these are two different job roles with two different sets of requirements. If you earn the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification, you do not automatically earn the MCITP: Server Administrator certification.
