Career as a Network Administrator

If you are interested in a career in server technology, I would suggest you study for the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator on Windows Server 2008.

This MCITP certification is what a network administrator or network engineer would have on his resume for similar job roles. This certification requires 5 exams total in any order to become certified. Four are core exams and the fifth exam is an elective you can choose.

When you pass any of the 5 exams you will gain access to the Microsoft MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional) website which allows you to view your transcript, order your certificate and even send your transcript to employers to prove your certification.

These are the four core exams: (Must pass all of them)

  • 70-640 TS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuring
  • 70-642 TS: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure, Configuring
  • 70-643 TS: Windows Server 2008 Applications Infrastructure, Configuring

There is another MCITP certification that is called MCITP: Server Administrator on Windows Server 2008. This certification requires only 3 exams to earn:

Earning the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator will definitely get you noticed as a well-respected and knowledgeable IT administrator. You will confidently tackle advance IT server and network issues. That alone should motivate you to continue your education and work on the new MCSA and MCSE for Windows Server 2012.

What's next after earning this certification?

Your MCITP certification will remain valuable as long as companies are running Windows Server 2008. If you currently hold an MCITP: Enterprise Administrator or MCITP: Server Administrator certification you are automatically certified in the new MCSA Windows Server 2008 since you already passed all the required exams.

This certification can help you towards pursuing a successful career as a:

1.) Computer Network Technician

2.) Network Administrator

3.) Network Engineer

Why not just go after the Windows Server 2012 MCSA and MCSE?

In todays networks, most companies are still running Windows 2003 and Windows 2008. It is not good practice to just upgrade your servers as soon as a new software is developed. The migration and upgrade of many servers is very costly in time and money for any company. Most companies don’t want to fix anything if it's not broken.

Be Prepared Always!

Eventually, companies will upgrade from Server 2003 or 2008 to the newer technologies that Windows Server 2012 offers. When this occurs, you want to be prepared and ready to complete the migration and upgrade task. For this reason, you will benefit greatly by earning your MCITP: Enterprise Administrator and eventually do the upgrade path to Windows Server 2012.

Don’t ever feel that you are wasting your time or running out of time because with Microsoft’s upgrade paths, you are always learning something that is being used in the real world. Also, if you show that you have a certification from years ago like Server 2008 to your employer and also show interest in pursuing the newest certification (MCSE 2012) then that shows your employer your commitment and dedication to learning.

Train at Home

Use virtual software to practice your MCITP certification. I like to use VMware Player which is free and I also run Microsoft Virtual PC.

You can download Windows 7 Enterprise and a free trial of Windows Server 2008 and easily create a home practice lab to improve your IT skills.

After you have studied the specific exam and practiced what you have learned, you can schedule your exam with Prometric here.
