Hi,

recently MS sent out some emails regarding the upgrade Certifications
form Windows 2003 MCSE to Windows 2008 MCSE.
IS there any information available, about upgrade from Windows 2000 MCSE
to Windows 2008 MCSE?
Or is there any information available about the number of certifications
needed?

Thanks and Kind Regards
Thorsten

There is no MCSE 2008. They've incorporated it into their MCTS/MCITP
certifications. I guess once you get seven of them, you could consider it the
equivalent of an MCSE 2008, but Microsoft doesn't.

You can't upgrade directly from MCSA/MCSE 2000 to 2008 anything.

If you want to go the upgrade route, you have to first upgrade to 2003 (you
only have nine months to take the 70-292/70-296 exams before they expire),
then upgrade to 2008.

Or wait and take the 2008 exams directly.

I know this is nit-picking a little, but I think it's important to spell it
out for anyone interested.

You can "upgrade" from 2000 to 2003 by taking 70-292/70-296.
You can also "upgrade" from 2000 to 2003 by taking 70-290/70-291 instead of
70-292, and by taking 70-293/70-294 instead of taking 70-296.
As Larry pointed out, 70-292 and 70-296 will expire in March/2008.
The other tests have not been targeted to expire, and that path will still
be open beyond March/2008 and for some time to come.
